When It’s Time for Long-Term Care
The decision to enter a long-term care facility isn’t one that individuals or their families take lightly. However, in the presence of certain health, safety, and practical concerns, a long-term care facility is often the best way to ensure the health and well-being of someone you love. Ask yourself the following questions.
Do I have the resources to provide the care my loved one needs?
Providing in-home care for a family member can leave us short of time, financial resources, and strength. In families where the responsibilities for care aren’t evenly-distributed, that stress often leads to resentment and recriminations.
Do I have the skills and knowledge to provide the best care?
You know your loved one’s favorite television shows, you provide them with companionship, make sure they take their medications on time, accompany them to medical appointments, and cook meals loaded with nutrition and love in equal measure. But when their needs become more complex and involve rehabilitation or therapy, you are likely to find that your skills are lacking.
Is my loved one a danger to themselves, or to others?
If you have a relative with dementia or Alzheimer’s, you’ve probably noticed that it isn’t just their memory that’s changed. Their temperament often changes as well. They can seem like their old selves one moment, but the next, they may be prone to agitation, wandering, or even aggressive behavior that can cause them to harm themselves or others.
Long-Term Care Services
We offer a variety of skilled nursing services at our long-term care facility in Mercer County WV. This ensures a continuum of high-quality care.
- Health care services, including pain management, wound management, IV therapy, and respiratory care
- Therapeutic services that include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy

Residents won’t need, or use, each of these services all the time. However, they and their families have peace of mind knowing that every need — health, social, emotional, and physical — is paid close attention. Resources and skilled, caring staff are always close at hand.
Managing the Transition to Long-Term Care
The transition to a long-term care facility begins long before move-in day. During this time, uncertainty and emotions run high, especially for family members dealing with guilt and worries over the standard of care offered their loved one, and for the resident, who may be fearful of the change in their routine and what it means for their quality of life. We help families navigate this difficult transition in a way that honors their feelings while assuaging their concerns. We encourage you to take advantage of this support.
