Frequently Asked Questions about Care

At Country Meadows, we take great pride in improving the lives we touch with quality healthcare and everyday compassion. We know families like you are seeking the right care for their loved one and may have specific questions. Here are some frequently asked questions we thought may be helpful in your search. We invite you to contact our team with any others you may have or to discuss these in more detail.

Financial Questions

What does your daily room rate include?

All personal care supplies, nursing supplies, incontinence care and medical equipment.

Does Medicare pay for this type of care?

Medicare Part A will pay for a skilled nursing stay for a benefit period of up to 100 days if you meet skilled criteria. For eligible* residents, the breakdown is as follows:

Days 1-20 covered at 100% of cost (including medications)

Days 21-100, there is a coinsurance of $161/day unless secondary insurance provides benefits at which point a percentage of the coinsurance would be covered.

Are there other financial assistance programs available?

There are a variety of outside financial resources to help families with costs. Click here for more information about these options.

Care & Support Questions

What is the difference between skilled nursing and personal care?

A skilled nursing community provides 24-hour nursing care for either short-term rehabilitation or long-term support. Country Meadows offers an individualized plan designed to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents. For those who need it, occupational, physical and speech therapies are available, as well as therapeutic diets and activities focused on wellness.

A personal care community offers private and semi-private apartment-style living with help in activities of daily living. From assistance with dressing to medication management, our Personal Care residents enjoy programs customized to provide the support they need, even Memory Care if necessary.

What if my loved one does not recover fully. Can he or she stay?

We find some short-term recovery residents need more care than they can receive at home or a family member can provide. Since our community provides all levels of support, our team will work with your family to identify the right care plan for your needs in our community.

How often will my loved one receive therapy?

Depending on your loved one’s needs, therapy services are provided up to six days a week. Residents are seen approximately two hours a day. Standardized testing is part of the evaluation process with reassessments completed throughout the progression of therapy. Our primary focus is returning a resident to his or her home or prior level of care.

I may not be able to drive my loved one to and from doctors’ appointments. Do you provide transportation?

We do. When available, we offer transportation to and from physician appointments and dialysis up to 10 miles from our campus. It’s all part of our resident-centered care services.

I’d like to review your state inspection reports. How can I access them?

Every year the state surveys our communities by its standards. But every day we raise our own. To be one of the best skilled nursing home centers, we can’t settle for “normal.” Our current and prospective residents and patients have high expectations and so do we. We encourage you to review our nursing center’s inspection results as well as those you also are considering:

As you will see, we have a proven track record. Now see for yourself.
