Long-term care consists of nursing (and non-nursing) services for residents with chronic illness or disability and who are unable to care for themselves. Unlike short-term rehabilitation for people recovering from hospitalization, injury or illness, long-term care involves quality, extended-stay nursing services and attention for the elderly who can no longer live independently. It is different from assisted living in the level of services needed, and these patients are usually admitted following a hospital stay at an acute care center.

Advanced services and attention for multiple or complex conditions.

At Gulf Coast Health Care, our long-term care centers provide extended medical care, including rehabilitative care, to individuals with clinically complex problems or who have multiple acute or chronic conditions. The services we provide for long-term care residents include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Rehabilitation
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Cancer treatment
  • Pain management
  • Head trauma treatment

A people-centric approach focused on independence.

For long-term care patients, as well as all our patients and residents, Gulf Coast Health Care centers offer personalized care and attention in a comfortable, home-like environment. We focus on helping residents live as independently as possible. We also encourage family members to be involved in their loved one’s care.
