In this section you’ll find helpful information about long term care – from planning, to managed care, to suggestions and tips to improve the quality of life – you’ll find information and resources to help you and your family plan for long term care. We are constantly adding new information, so please visit the CMI Info-Center often.
Long term care is a variety of services provided in many different settings. The services help meet the needs of people who have a chronic illness, a disability, or who need round-the-clock assistance as they can’t care for themselves.
The care can be provided in the home, the community, in assisted living or in nursing homes. Services include Adult Day Service; Case Managers/Geriatric Care Managers; Home Health Care; Continuing Care Retirement Communities; Nursing Homes; and Foster Family Home Care.
Remember, you are not alone. Our long term care professionals are here to serve you. So, please call today. We look forward to hearing from you!
Statement about Hawaii Medical Centers (HMC East and HMC West) Closings from Donna Schmidt, LCSW of Pearl City Urgent Care:
With the closure of the local hospitals and emergency departments, the remaining ERs will be overcrowded and stressed to their limits. Area physicians' offices will also be busy as this is the cold, flu, earache and asthma attack season. We offer patients the convenient option of our new Pearl City Urgent Care Center staffed by Emergency Physicians and Nurse Practitioners with many years of Emergency Medicine experience. We are striving to serve the community, especially in this time of need for immediate medical care." Read a Special Report on EMR Closings.
