We are here to provide guidance.
At NHC Pulaski, we understand that there are many factors - physical, financial and emotional - that may need to be considered when making life-changing care and medical decisions for you, a loved one or a patient.
If you or someone you know is in need of inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing services or is interested in our respite or long-term care options, our Social Services team can answer any questions you may have. We will be happy to provide you with information on the admissions requirements as they relate to each of the different levels of care that we offer and will work with you to determine the most appropriate level of care for you or your family member. We will provide you with information regarding room availability and placement options.
Cost and Benefits
At NHC Pulaski our daily room rates are very competitive with those of Assisted Living, Home Health and Private Sitters, particularly when you consider the inclusive services such as recreation, dietary offerings, social services and 24-hour licensed nursing care.
We are certified to accept patients with Medicare, private insurance, managed care, private funds and Medicaid. The Social Services department will work with you to explain all financing options available to you.
Available funds sources include, but are not limited to:
Long Term Care Insurance
Long term care insurance is a good alternative to prepare in advance for skilled nursing and rehabilitative needs. Depending upon policy coverage selected, long term insurance may pay up to 100% of the costs of your care.
Our social workers will communicate with patients and their families throughout the patient's stay. When the patient's level of care changes, we continue to assist with the discharge planning and other options available. These options may include home, assisted living or transitioning into the center's long term care unit.
Our social services team is here to ensure that you and your family is well informed from admission to discharge. We have established strong relationships with area hospitals, home health agencies and other health organizations in our community to ensure that an appropriate continuity of care is provided to each patient.
If you would like more information on current room availability, wait-list status or other information, please call us at (931) 363-3572 and talk with our Admissions Coordinator or a Social Worker.
