Medicare Certification at Foulk Living Provides Short-Term Rehab Services

“This means that we now offer all levels of care on-site and are a true Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC),” says Leslie Johnson, Executive Director of Foulk Living. The Wilmington-based senior living community earned its Medicare A certification for short-term rehabilitation. “Our management company, Life Care Services® (LCS), saw this as an important priority for us and helped to make it happen.” 

Prior to this certification, Foulk Living offered independent living, assisted living, memory care, and long-term skilled nursing. Short-term rehabilitation was available to its residents at Shipley Living, its nearby sister community. “Being licensed for Medicare A allows us to provide needed short-term therapies on-site here as they rehabilitate to return to their home,” says Renee Goolday, Regional Healthcare Marketing & Sales Specialist with LCS, working with Foulk Living. “This was a long and comprehensive certification and credentialing process for LCS, but well worth the work.” 

Foulk Living Named a “Best Nursing Home”  

U.S. News and World Report recently designated Foulk Living’s health care center as one of the nation’s Best Nursing Homes for 2022-2023. “We have a great medical team at Foulk Living and are proud to see their dedication recognized,” says Goolday. “This new certification lets us broaden our reach.” 

The first short-term rehabilitation patient was admitted earlier this month. “She’s a Foulk Living resident in long-term care who was hospitalized. When she was discharged, she needed to regain her strength and we were able to provide that here through our Medicare A certification,” says Goolday.  “We are excited to have this opportunity to help other people in the area needing rehabilitation and wanting great care.”
