Jackson Plaza Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

Fort Lauderdale Health & Rehabilitation Center

Finding a skilled nursing center for recuperation after a serious illness or in old age can be tricky. You may have left the Jackson Memorial Hospital but aren't fully ready to go back on your feet. Jackson Plaza Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a respected option.

Three Plaza Health hospitals are virtually within walking distance: Jackson Memorial Hospital, UM Health Center, and Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. 

In Miami-Dade County, Florida, Plaza Health Network has seven facilities for long-term care, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation. One facility is the Jackson Plaza Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.

This isn't an assisted living facility. Nursing homes give both medical and personal care constantly, whereas assisted living facilities often just provide personal care.

Patients at Jackson Plaza can expect a wide range of care services. 

Do any of these needs apply to you?

  • Occupational therapy
  • Respiratory care
  • Physical therapy
  • Skilled nursing care

Elder Needs Law Services in Florida

Besides finding a good nursing home, elder needs planning involves many different decisions. 

Elder Law encompasses several legal areas, including:

Estate Planning

Elder Needs Law offers help with many other elements of estate planning, such as:

Medicare And Medicaid

After a three-day hospital stay, Medicare only pays for 100 days of rehabilitation or nursing home care. If you are eligible, Medicare will pay for the first 20 days of long-term care costs. However, in 2023, there is an additional copay for the remaining 80-days, which is $200 a day.

Because Medicare does not cover long-term care or nursing homes for more than 100 days, working with an elder law attorney with substantial experience in Medicaid planning is essential.

Home healthcare, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities are all more expensive than you think. Medicaid may be a choice if you require assistance with long-term care costs. Suppose your income or assets are too high to qualify for Medicaid. In that case, Medicaid planning may be an alternative to get you back into the program's acceptable range. 

Medicaid Eligibility

Good nursing home care usually is costly and requires planning from your loved ones. 

In Florida, applicants must meet specific standards to qualify for Medicaid, including: 

  • Florida residence
  • US citizenship or legal resident alien for at least five years
  • An income of less than $2,742 per month as of January 2023
  • Less than $2,000 of combined assets
  • For those with excess income or assets, our medicaid lawyers can help!

“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.”
