Long Term Awareness Month: Long Term Care Services

November is National Long Term Care Awareness Month, and the Gulf Coast Health Care (GCHC) centers in Florida and Mississippi are showing support for our skilled team of specialists and patients. 

As a leading provider of rehabilitation, skilled nursing, assisted living and long term care for seniors, we want to encourage anyone 65 years or older to have a plan ready should you need long term care. It will not only give you peace of mind, but also help your family plan for your long term care journey.
