Typically, patients on the unit require skilled care after hip or knee replacement, following a stroke, or due to a generalized weakness from pneumonia or other illnesses.

The long term care unit offers 24-hour nursing care for patients who are unable to remain at home or unable to return home after a skilled stay. Unlike skilled care, extended care is not covered by Medicare. Residents in long term care may need help with medications, eating, bathing and dresssing or may require other more extensive care.
