Long-term care is for those who need permanent full-time care with daily activities like bathing, dressing, eating, moving from one place to another, hygiene, toileting, etc. Long-term care is usually provided in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) like Ingleside Communities.
Skilled nursing care helps with medical needs including rehab therapies, medication management, IV therapy, colostomy care, and other services, memory care, wound care, medication management, pain management, and more. Care is administered by a nurse.
Ingleside Communities offers short-term inpatient and outpatient rehab therapy including occupational, speech and physical therapies plus many other modalities. Many patients use physical therapy prior to surgery, or to help with healing following a hospital stay or post-surgical procedure such as a knee or hip replacement. Professional therapists help patients regain strength, increase movement, reduce pain and improve health prior to returning home.
Transitional care is an important service that coordinates the continuity of patient care during a move from one place to another, like from a hospital to a nursing/rehab center, and then back home. The goal of transitional care is to have caregivers and health care providers working together to share information ensuring patients don’t have interruptions in their care needs and experience a smooth transition from one setting to another.
If falls are a concern, the care plan may include interventions and special precautions to help address this issue that will be followed by our team. Many of our daily programming and activities offer exercise classes that focus on strength and balance, which may assist in reducing the risk of falling.
At admission, our nursing and care teams work together to assess a new resident’s health status by reviewing medical history as well as personal needs and preferences to create an individualized care plan that best meets the resident’s needs.

Yes. Whether it's a short-term rehab stay at Ingleside Communities or if we become a permanent home for you or a loved one, special items from home are welcome to help decorate a resident’s room. We provide basic furniture including a bed, nightstand, dresser, chair, etc. We always encourage residents to personalize their room and make it feel like home.
Items to bring for a short-term stay include comfortable clothes, athletic shoes, pajamas, a robe, slippers, personal grooming items, and anything you or your loved one might want or need during your stay. A resident’s family can choose to do a resident’s personal laundry, or we can do it.

We welcome visitors and work with families and friends to visit their loved ones at a time that works best for them. To honor quiet hours and our residents' privacy, we encourage visiting hours between 9 am and 8 pm. To keep the building secure, doors are locked at 8 pm, but entry is available via a doorbell.
We don’t allow pets to live at our facility, but pets can come to visit. Occasionally, we have therapy pets that come in to visit with residents who are interested. Pet visits are always a highlight for staff and residents alike.
We work with each family to support their needs including accommodating urgent admissions whenever possible. Residents receive a full care assessment prior to moving in, which helps our care team develop an individualized care plan. In some cases, a new admission can occur in as little as a few hours.
