So the purpose of this podcast is really just to give you a baseline, some definitions to understand the different types of providers so that when you need them, you at least have some understanding.
And then I also want to encourage you to think about this.
We talked about the importance of pre-planning, but we never think about what if I need to go to the hospital?
Which hospital would I choose? We just go where they send us.
What if I need to go to a nursing home? Which nursing home would I choose?
You've got choices. If you don't pre-plan and think about those things, you get in that situation. You'll go where they send you.
The quality of care that you receive anywhere you go regardless of what type of care we're talking about what state you live in, how old you are. It's all contingent upon the staff.
With me on this episode is Debbie Ayers, a Medicare enrollment specialist, and also our Community Relations Manager at Capital Health Care Network.
