Often NOT included:
Typically, unless there is a skilled nursing component to the community, medical care of any sort will not be provided.
Some communities have a tiered program of services offered. Services will depend on what the resident needs. For example, some communities might offer daily wellness checks or assistance with incontinence or taking medications. These types of customized services are usually offered at an additional cost.
Some communities will allow outside services if the resident needs additional care and the community itself does not provide the services. These third-party services may include physical therapy, hospice care, podiatry or dentistry.
