Long Term Care
Belle Fountain offers long-term care for those residents that need it.
Long-term care is a variety of services that help meet both the medical and non-medical needs of people with a chronic illness or disability who cannot care for themselves for long periods. Long-term care is focused on individualized and coordinated services that promote independence, maximize patients’ quality of life, and meet patients’ needs over a period of time.
It is common for long-term care to provide custodial and non-skilled care, such as assisting with normal daily tasks like dressing, feeding, and using the bathroom. Increasingly, long-term care involves providing a level of medical care that requires the expertise of skilled practitioners to address the multiple chronic conditions associated with older populations. Long-term care can be provided at home, in the community, in assisted living facilities, or in nursing homes. Long-term care may be needed by people of any age, although it is a more common need for senior citizens.
