Costs, inclusions and access.
The care in our Skilled Nursing is more financially feasible than having similar care delivered in the resident’s home. Skilled Nursing care is charged on a daily basis and is often paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, a variety of supplemental insurance, VA benefits, long-term care insurance or a combination of these, based on the policy. In the greater Houston area, Skilled Nursing rates range from $152 to $231 per day,* depending on the room, services and amenities selected (see below), and the amount and kinds of care provided. Life Care can help manage the costs of Skilled Nursing, and often will deliver substantial savings when compared to obtaining the same care in a stand-alone nursing home.
Services and amenities at The Crossings include meals and snacks, scheduled transportation, worship services, wellness programming, housekeeping and laundry, and a continuum of offerings for ways to avoid boredom, depending on one’s capabilities.
Residents in Independent Living have priority access to higher levels of living, including short- and long-term Skilled Nursing, but the public has access to these residences on a first-come basis. If you’re seeking Skilled Nursing for yourself or a loved one, don’t hesitate to contact us as soon as you can.
