Long -Term Care
The Long-Term Care Facility at Thumbay University Hospital offers a variety of services which meet both the medical and non-medical needs of those who cannot take care of themselves. We place equal emphasis on quality-of-life and quality-of-care for our patients. Our Long-Term Care Facility is designed for patients who need extended hospital care or nursing home care, and the facility’s convenient location allows patients to stay in a safe hospital environment and to continue to interact with family and friends. The need for such a center can happen under different circumstances, irrespective of a person’s age, gender or fitness level. Long-term care may be required following a lengthy/chronic illness or a serious cognitive impairment. An unexpected accident or injury could also warrant long-term care. Thumbay University Hospital offers personalized long-term care which ranges from simple assistance for daily activities to highly skilled care. The focus of the long-term care unit is to achieve holistic recovery for each patient, through customized care plans involving a multidisciplinary approach.
