Physicians are required to see their residents in the nursing facility at least once a quarter. Some doctors come to Pine Valley Community Village and others require that the resident go to the clinic office. If it is difficult for the resident or a family member to get to the clinic, it may make sense to choose a physician who makes visits at the nursing facility. The best way to find this out is to ask the physician or his or her nurse.
Our goal is to maximize your coverage, but also to operate in an ethical manner consistent with our mission. Our team of professionals meets twice a week to discuss all the residents currently being covered under Medicare. We communicate with you if Medicare coverage is nearing its completion. On average, most residents are covered for about 2 to 4 weeks, but this varies depending on a person’s diagnosis and progress.
Otherwise if you have specific questions and need assistance completing an advanced directive contact Pine Valley Community Village and ask for the Social Services Department and they would be happy to assist you.
