communities. Long Term Care is residential care for heavy-needs clients.
Heartland provides long-term care beds, as well as beds for palliative
and convalescent care, and respite care and day/night care. The latter
program provides temporary care to relieve family or other support
point of entry to apply to long-term care is the local Client Care
Coordinator. She will provide guidance to the individual and their
family about the application process. The Regional Coordinating
Committee then determines which residents have the highest risk and/or
the greatest need for long-term care services. Placement into long-term
care is based upon a rating system, which identifies applicants with the
greatest need and least support as priorities for placement. Every
effort is made to match the special needs of each client with the
long-term care facility, services, location and environment.
Health Care Directive (or Advanced Care Directive) tells others how you
would like to be treated if you lose ability to make your own decisions
about health care and choices of medical treatment. Health Care
Directives are prepared in advance, looking ahead to a time when you may
no longer be able to make these decisions for yourself.
