Guardian Plan

Extra Care and Attention for the Resident…Extra Help for Family Members

Your loved one’s team of care providers will include a primary care physician and a nurse practitioner working as a team with the Continuing Care staff. Your loved one will also have the attention of a registered nurse as a care coordinator to help provide a higher level of personal attention to the extra medical services that may need to be arranged, like medical appointments with specialists, to result in better coordinated care. Better still, you know right where to find this team of experts. They are located here on our campus and may be a telephone call or short walk away.


Care Brought Right to the Bedside

Unlike Original Medicare, the Erickson Advantage Guardian Plan can cover many services right in the resident’s own room that might otherwise require the stress and trauma of a trip to the emergency room or a three-or-more day stay in the hospital. If medically appropriate, some tests and treatments such as X-rays, intravenous or intramuscular medications, intravenous fluid therapy and more, may be done right at the bedside. Unlike Original Medicare, the Erickson Advantage Guardian Plan does not require a three-day hospital stay before such skilled services will be covered right in the long-term care setting.

Co-pays and coinsurances may apply.
