A concern over a hospital bill should never prevent an individual from receiving necessary health services. LifeCare Medical Center is a charitable organization that is committed to provide healthcare to patients regardless of their ability to pay. Therefore, a Community Care Assistance Program is available for those needing financial assistance.
LifeCare Medical Center provides Health Care Directive information, documents, and assistance to patients, families, visitors, and to any community member that makes a request.
Thinking about what type of medical care you want or do not want is a very important part of your overall medical care. Most people have a general idea of what type of life-saving or life-prolonging treatment they want or do not want. Though many people have not taken the time to inform their families or other people responsible to make decisions for them, of their specific beliefs.
Giving a family member this information, that is consistent with the patient’s wishes and beliefs, can be a wonderful gift to a family. Being able to make a decision for someone knowing that it is what they would want can give a family comfort and a sense of peace. Just knowing that family has carried out the patient’s wishes, not their own, is often times consoling to those left behind.
Requests for information or assistance can be made through any of the social work department offices at LifeCare.

My Medication List
To provide you the most safe and effective care, it is important that we have a list of all medicines you are taking, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medicine, herbs and vitamins. A doctor or nurse will collect this information from you on admission.
Please do not bring medications with you. Your doctor will make arrangements for you to receive the medications you need while you are here.
The best way to manage your medicines is to keep a current list of everything you are taking. And be sure to update the list every time you start or stop a medication.

LifeCare Medical Center is committed to meeting the spiritual needs of all who seek care. We recognize that spiritual care and religious resources are integral dimensions of healing and health. Spirituality helps to bridge the gap connecting the body to the mind and spirit.
We believe that spiritual care is focused on compassion which honors personal and religious beliefs. For this reason, LifeCare feels that it is important to have a chaplain on staff who supports our patients, residents, clients, their families and our staff. With the support of our chaplain, LifeCare is able to stay committed to not only the physical but the spiritual element of wellness.
Visitors can be good medicine for patients and residents.
