The post-acute care industry has changed a lot over the years and for the better. 

However, many misperceptions about post-acute care communities persist. 

Separating fact from fiction will help you stay open to all of your post-acute care options. 

Check out the top myths we identified:

Myth: Post-acute care centers are like hospitals

Fact: While post-acute care communities offer in-depth medical care, they are very different from hospitals. 

Today’s communities offer home-like comforts and a less-structured atmosphere. 

Myth: Patients never leave or go out

Fact: Post-acute care communities look after a variety of patients, each with different needs. 

Some will stay only for a month recovering from an injury while other patients might require a lengthier stay. 

Myth: Residents cannot make their own decisions

Fact: It is a resident’s legal right to make choices regarding activities, daily routines, health care and other aspects of life. The community’s responsibility is to provide an environment where residents can live together safely and harmoniously.
