Locating placement for a patient is a big responsibility for social service directors. Nursing homes are often large communities of 100 or more short term and long term care patients, making the job of a social service director and patient advocate challenging.
In these larger communities, Heritage Lane understands that one mentally ill patient can create a very challenging environment for CNA’s, Nurses, PT’s, OT’s, ST’s and other disciplines who interact with the patient.
Post-Acute Rehab and Long Term Care Facilities are rarely equipped to handle and manage patients with mental health illnesses. These patients are often disruptive to the milieu and make the job of the clinical staff very frustrating because they don’t have the training or tools necessary to address the challenges.
Whether finished with rehab and unsafe to return home, or living in long term care and creating milieu challenges, Heritage Lane is an excellent resource for step-down placement for psychiatric assisted living.
We will evaluate your patient same day and with all necessary documentation will respond within 24 hours. If accepted, admission is scheduled and Heritage Lane will take responsibility for the move and ensure the patient is transported safely to Heritage Lane.
