The Road to Healthcare Recovery Often Needs Continuing Care

A SDLV Health Report

Betty knew immediately that something was wrong. She told her husband to call for an ambulance. The emergency staff determined that Betty had suffered a stroke. She was admitted to the hospital where she stayed for several days.

When it came time for Betty to be discharged, the hospital staff knew she required continued care to recover completely. They developed a care plan for Betty to ensure her medical needs would be met, so she could make the quickest transition from the traditional hospital to home. This care plan introduced Betty to the healthcare continuum, a concept long advocated but only recently achieved.

continuum of carte
Betty’s plan of care determined that the most appropriate setting after her hospital stay was the Transitional Care Center in Kindred Hospital Las Vegas – Flamingo. The healthcare providers at Kindred offer the variety of nursing and rehabilitative services required to assist her in recovery from her stroke.

“Our goal is to help patients achieve positive outcomes, regain function and safely return home as quickly as their recovery allows, “ explained Esteban Duran-Ballen, Executive Director. “Our services include physical, occupational and speech-language therapy as well as skilled nursing and specialized short-term rehabilitative programs.”

“The transition-to-home plan begins upon admission,” Duran-Ballen stated. The typical stay at Kindred’s Transitional Care Center can last from several days to several weeks, depending on a patient’s specific needs.

Kindred’s Transitional Care Centers provide care for many clinically complex patients across the country. In addition to post-stroke recovery, treatment is offered for a variety of medical conditions including congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or pneumonia episodes, neurological illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease, cardiac conditions, wound care, uncontrolled diabetes and hip, knee or joint repair/replacement.

When Betty had rehabilitated enough to safely go home, her care team determined that it would be best to continue with nursing care and therapy in the home–with Kindred at Home services, and her plan of care went with her.

“Our expertise across the post-acute spectrum allows us to help people like Betty recover to her fullest extent by providing the right care at the right time,” Duran-Ballen stated.

Dental Implant Institute Patient Experience: Edda

Edda, who was born in Germany, has been a long time patient of ours. We placed a single implant several years back when she was a Las Vegas Resident. She moved out of state, and her current dentist told her that she had numerous “hopeless teeth” and would need a denture.

Edda gave us a call and explained that she had no interest in dentures and would like implants instead. Within a month she was on her way out to Las Vegas to have 12 implants placed and 24 crowns. The entire process took 4 months total and two visits to our office.

During the first visit Edda had the implants placed by Dr. Jennifer Cha, and on the most recent visit Dr. Cha placed the crowns.

I just dropped her off at the airport this morning and she couldn’t be happier! Below is the thank you letter she handed to Nathan and a couple of photos of the work performed.

Seeking state’s top senior citizen

ASDO imageNSHC
The search for Nevada’s Senior Citizen of the Year begins on Feb. 1.

The National Silver Haired Congress Nevada Delegation, in partnership with the Aging Services Directors Organization (ASDO), established the award last year.

Frank Pati, a 76-year-old Mesquite resident, was honored by Governor Sandoval and the Congressional delegation as the first-ever Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year. Nominators described Pati’s efforts like this:

“In the past two decades, Frank not only brought distinction to Mesquite and the state of Nevada through his senior softball tournaments and the Mesquite Senior Games, he changed the lives of many seniors in giving them a vehicle to stay active and to develop new friendships.”

Who’s the next Nevada Senior Citizen of the Year? It could be a friend, a neighbor or a community leader. It could be someone from your town or across the state.

The competition is open to all those who are age 60 and older and have lived in Nevada for five years. The nomination guidelines and forms are available at www.nevshc.org.

The deadline for nominations is March 31. The award will be presented in May.

Reverse Mortgage Tidbits #3

“DID YOU KNOW”

 

The top 3 things Seniors fear most are:
1. Will I outlive my money?
2. If I run out of money, what will happen to me and where will I live?
3. Will I become a burden to my children or my family?

Seniors come from an era of extremely strong work ethics and the thought of becoming dependent on others, or a burden to their family is unbearable. Many would give anything to be able to stay in their homes and be able to pay and bring the services they need into their homes.

As their “children”, you MUST get involved and start asking questions, so when the time comes, you know what they want, and what to do for them. Start asking, now!

With a Reverse Mortgage we can address these fears and make them disappear and replace them with peace of mind. No other program offers a remedy to fix these concerns. What we can give them is a way for them to stay in their homes, and in many cases give them access to money every month that will help them avoid becoming a burden to their loved ones.

For many Seniors, this is truly a dream come true. Call me 702-845-4632.
