The Extended Care Wing provides services for up to 20 residents, who choose to live on the unit. Because the unit is smaller than most nursing facilities, residents receive more one-on-one attention and develop very close bonds with the staff members. The staff on the unit think of the residents and their loved ones as their own ‘family’.
The Extended Care option is private pay for room and board. Medicare WILL NOT cover room and board expenses. Labs, x-rays, respiratory treatments and rehab services will be billed to Medicare Part B. Oxygen and other medical supplies are additional. Physician services are billed separately. Pharmacy services are billed separately.
