Caregiving & Staffing

The team at Prosperity Oaks has licensed nurses and rehabilitation specialists as well as memory care specialists. As a part of the ProMedica family of service providers, they have an integrated health network of hospitals, doctors, and health insurance accommodations for their patients. Heartland Health Care Center staff can also provide home health care in addition to the caregiving done onsite at their 120-bed Prosperity Oaks facility.

This is especially important for those needing to reduce health care costs for medical services such as:

  • Prescription assistance
  • More costly medical services
  • Home health care

Elder Care Services

There are three main areas of focus for the Prosperity Oaks healthcare specialists:

  1. Short-term care: With a focus on an inpatient's specific lifestyle and unique condition, the ProMedica network ensures the patient is paired with the medical professional best-suited for them. The specialists work closely and personally with the patient to help them return to the sunny Florida lifestyle that brings them joy while having their temporary living space needs accommodated by the in-house Prosperity Oaks team.
  2. Long-term care: For long-term residential services, the same ProMedica specialists offer the daily assistance needed for those needing a bit more attention—and all the more dignity—as they enjoy the peace they deserve. Prosperity Oaks states that its aim is to "provide gracious daily living and personal care in a homelike environment."
  3. Outpatient rehabilitation: For those feeling almost fully independent but needing to touch in with supplemental rehabilitation services, Prosperity Oaks draws on the same vast network of Southeast Florida healthcare services for less frequent physical therapy needs. After discharge, outpatients can receive continuity of care with the therapists with whom they've established a relationship and maintain connections with their friends who are still living in the facility.

Government Rating of Heartland Health Care Center - Prosperity Oaks

As of January 2022, Medicare.gov's review of Heartland Health Care Center - Prosperity Oaks reflects an overall 4 out of 5-star rating, broken down as follows:

  • Health inspections: Average (3 / 5)
  • Quality measures, overall: Above average (4 / 5)
  • Short-term care quality: Much above average (5 / 5)
  • Long-term care quality: Above average (4 / 5)
  • Staffing, overall: Much above average (5 / 5)
  • Registered nurse staffing: Much above average (5 / 5)

The health inspections score looks at not only regular health inspections but also infection control inspections and inspections that occur following complaints.

The quality measures score is a bit more complex, taking into account several aspects of patient care including emergency room visits, rehospitalization, flu shot history, pain level, mobility, and more. Short-term patients are those who stay 100 days or less in the facility, while long-term patients are those who stay over 100 days.

The staffing score analyzes the staff to resident ratio. A nursing home will have a higher score if they have high numbers of nursing staff hours (registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and nurse’s aides) and low staff turnover compared to the number of patients in residence.

Of course, it's important to review the facility yourself, seek second opinions, and make certain that you agree with the assessment of the facility. Look into verified reviews as well as previous fines or other regulatory issues, especially for recent incidents.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What do elderly people need to look for from a rehab center?
Since movement—no matter at what level—is crucial to improving health, it's important to find a clinic that offers many options so that enjoyable physical activities are always available. Even for the most bed-bound patients, you'll want to make sure that the staff takes the need to move, even with assistance, quite seriously. Seek a nursing facility that has a higher than average amount of fun and engaging activities.
    How long will I need to stay?
    It varies widely. Above all, be clear about your goals and have the staff be on the same page. Remember that for post-op and ailment recovery, the medical professional is going to want to evaluate your progress and be able to adjust their treatment accordingly. Ensure financial pressures are a distant second (or even third) in priorities when compared to health outcomes, which must be primary.

    "Jason and his team are responsive and communicate very well. Jason helped me to get the benefits that I qualified for much faster than expected. I would recommend him highly.

    “I've been very impressed! A friend referred me and I've experienced nothing but perfect service and professionalism. I am extremely grateful!”

    “A strong recommendation for Jason Neufeld and his Elder Law firm - very professional, patient, reliable, and experienced. When my father fell terminally ill, I became responsible for his assets and finances overnight, including the daunting task to qualify him for Medicaid. I interviewed several elder law firms but was most impressed by Jason’s client approach and practices. Throughout the process, Jason and his team provided clear guidance and support to successfully complete all the new and complex tasks required as a POA, and more importantly he enabled us to quickly achieve our goals related to Medicaid and estate planning. His fees are more than reasonable for the level of due diligence and support we received.”
