Exceptional Long-Term Care at San Simeon by the Sound

In light of the month of November being Long-Term Care Awareness Month, San Simeon by the Sound’s long-term rehabilitation services are an excellent option for patients who require ongoing care to repair their health and wellness. The rehabilitation center focuses on providing a level of service that allows patients to achieve better well-being in a clean and nurturing environment.

As part of the facility’s unparalleled commitment, San Simeon offers comprehensive long-term care services – including nutritional planning, diabetes management, pain management, cancer care, ostomy care and total parenteral nutrition (TPN) – all to improve quality and fullness of life.

TPN is one of the many highly specialized medical services San Simeon provides as it is a method of providing nutrition through the veins for daily function. The intravenous nutrition feeding usually contains a mixture of protein, carbohydrates, glucose, fat, vitamins and minerals – which are all vital in maintaining energy, hydration and strength levels.

TPN is most often used for patients with Crohn’s disease, cancer, short bowel syndrome and pancreatitis. In order for TPN to be successful, it requires diligent monitoring especially of plasma glucose and liver functioning. After through observation, San Simeon’s expert staff of highly trained medical professionals will develop an individualized plan to meet each patient’s specific needs to ensure a rich quality of life.

San Simeon’s Wound Care Specialists

Sometimes patients develop wounds sustained from an acute injury, surgical wounds, diabetic wounds and bedsores. That’s where San Simeon’s wound specialists come in. The facility’s health care trained professionals are skilled at treating all types of wounds, both acute and chronic. If a wound, such as bedsore or diabetic ulcer has not healed after one month, the patient will be referred to one of San Simeon’s wound specialists who will add a specialized treatment like the hyperbaric oxygen chamber to improve the wound healing process.

Categories of Long-Term Care

Long-term care may be temporary or permanent, depending on the circumstances. Generally, rehabilitation after surgery or recovery from an injury or illness are reasons for temporary long-term care. Whereas, permanent long-term care is the underlying reason for people who have permanent disabilities, chronic medical conditions, cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, and need for assistance with activities of daily living.

There are two categories of long-term care services – personal care and skilled care. Personal care provides assistance with daily living activities, such as meal preparation, household chores and personal hygiene, including bathing and dressing. Skilled care includes care that provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, medication management and nursing – all which are provided by licensed professionals at San Simeon.

Long-term rehab services are an excellent choice for patients who require ongoing care to restore their health and wellness. San Simeon by the Sound’s facility makes their residents feel at home and like they are part of the family.
