Frequently Asked Questions
Does Royal Oak have any private rooms?
We have two private rooms for short-term skilled rehab patients, which are typically utilized for patients who are in need of isolation.
How will I know when it is time for me to look into the services of a Health Care Center?
Sometimes the body might just need some strengthening. Our goal is always to strengthen our patients so that they may return home to their prior living arrangement. If the goal of returning to prior level can not be met, we then change the goal to transition to Assisted Living Facility or Long-Term Nursing Care.
Is there an option to stay in a hospital versus a health care center?
Hospitals are designed for patients who have medical issues that can be treated only in a hospital. Insurance companies could also stop insurance benefits when you no longer need hospital care. A nursing center can provide the continuing medical care and rehabilitation services you need while you recover from illness or injury so that you can return home as soon as possible.
