What is the difference between a skilled nursing center and a personal care center?
A personal care center is a facility that provides a variety of services to elderly residents who may need assistance with activities of daily living including personal hygiene, grooming, bathing and medication monitoring. Our personal care center promotes an atmosphere where residents feel comfortable and at home. Residents often require varying degrees of assistance, depending on their individual health care needs and levels of independence. Residence in a personal care center is often appropriate for individuals seeking long-term assistance after a skilled nursing or hospital stay.
How do residents pay for care?
Our Personal Care Centers accept the Aid and Attendance benefit offered by the Veterans Administration. Contact the Lackawanna County Department of Veterans Affairs for more information.
Throughout the application process, our Director of Admissions will manage your insurance eligibility to ensure that our facility is the right fit for you or your loved one.
