We’re celebrating National Skilled Nursing Care Week this month. It’s one of the most important events of the year for nursing homes. It’s an opportunity to honor the vital role our skilled nursing centers play in the lives of our aging community.
This year’s official theme is “Sharing Our Wisdom,” and we can’t think of a better time for family and staff to connect with our residents and listen as they share unique perspectives and life experiences. We understand connecting with your loved ones is incredibly important, and we encourage you to call, email, text, video chat or connect on social media as we navigate the novel coronavirus. These alternatives offer our residents and their families a priceless opportunity to be present, celebrate small moments and value their connections.
It’s more important than ever to recognize staff and residents who are maintaining current social distancing rules and managing other health and safety concerns in our new reality.
Providing high-quality, skilled nursing care and friendship
Gulf Coast Health Care is a family of skilled nursing homes offering the following nursing care and services:
- Rehabilitation Care
Restorative therapy helps people regain their best function, return home and avoid rehospitalization. Our nurses educate and assist residents so they can live with and appropriately manage chronic illnesses and injuries.
- Assisted and Senior Living
Compassionate, appropriate and people-centric living for those who are unable to live independently, but do not require continuous nursing care. Our centers provide 24-hour staffing, personalized, resident-centered care and (when needed) nursing services.
- Long-Term Care
Ongoing care for those with chronic illnesses or disabilities and who are unable to care for themselves or complete daily activities autonomously (e.g., bathing, dressing, using the bathroom).
- Specialty Care
Gulf Coast Health Care offers ten specialty programs to manage the health of our residents and address their unique needs.
