For those who need a greater level of assistance, long-term care is the solution
Long-Term Care: Who Is It For?
Long-term care is for seniors who are no longer able to safely live at home on their own and require some form of 24-hour nursing care. For those who need support with personal care needs such as walking, eating, dressing, bathing, toileting or transferring/standing up, long-term care communities can provide the necessary support.
In other words, if your parent is having trouble with multiple daily care activities, or perhaps has a chronic illness, long-term care may be right for them. In addition to assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), long-term care communities offer things such as medication management, ensuring proper nutrition and physician visits to make sure the resident’s medical needs are being met.
However, the decision does not rest on your shoulders alone. Before entering a long-term care community that offers skilled nursing, a doctor needs to confirm that their patient needs to enter the community for care. Talk with your parent and their physician if you feel long-term care may be a good fit.
Choosing a Long-Term Care Community
If your parent needs to move to a long-term care community (historically known as nursing homes or nursing facilities), you’ll need to determine which community will be the best fit for them based on your parent’s needs and tastes.

Shortening your road to recovery
What are your rehabilitation needs?
Our seven Columbus rehabilitation centers have the therapy services you need to get back to your optimal health. We specialize in post-hospital rehabilitation and offer a variety of options to fit your needs, including inpatient, and outpatient rehabilitation. Some centers also offer a Refresh and Renew After Care Program for cosmetic surgery patients.
Inpatient rehab is typically for people who go from the hospital to a rehab center, where they’ll work with a therapy team for parts of each day, then rest and enjoy the center’s activities for the remainder of the day.
What to Expect During an Inpatient Rehab Stay
At MacIntosh communities, you’ll receive physical, occupational and speech therapy based on a care plan tailored to your needs by a team of experienced therapists and medical professionals.
Here’s an outline of what to expect when you stay with us:
• An initial assessment is completed upon admission. Assessments last 30-60 minutes, while therapists discuss your level of function prior to admission and evaluate your current status.
• A plan of care will be established centered on your personal goals and functional abilities.
• Therapy is offered up to 7 days a week, based on your individual needs and physical condition. Therapy sessions are generally 30-90 minutes in length per discipline.
• Therapists work with an interdisciplinary team that includes your physician to monitor progress and make recommendations to maximize your recovery.
• We recommend that you wear loose-fitting clothing that allows movement and proper footwear during therapy sessions.
• In-home therapy assessments are available when appropriate.
Outpatient rehab is for people who need some type of physical, occupational or speech therapy but are able to and choose to live at home while traveling to a rehab center to receive services.
Each MacIntosh care community offers outpatient services and features a state-of-the-art therapy gym with top-of-the-line equipment, as well as highly skilled therapy professionals who will provide periodic program updates for your physician.
Other outpatient treatments include assistance with balance, pain, eating or swallowing difficulties; urinary incontinence; and self-care challenges with bathing or dressing. Prior to completion of outpatient rehabilitation, patients will receive a customized home exercise program to maximize function and independence. Flexible scheduling is available Monday through Friday.
