Buena Vida accepts admissions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our admissions office will work closely with your care provider to make your admission process to Buena Vida a smooth and pleasant experience. The Director of Admissions will be glad to discuss any questions you may have. Facility tours are available for your convenience. A member from the Buena Vida team follows up with patients and their families with regard to care-planning, progress reports, short and long-term goals, therapy and nursing care. The social worker assists with discharge planning as well as set up of proper homecare and in-home equipment required upon discharge.
There are many payment options to choose from, making it one less concern for family members and allowing them to simply focus on the care and treatment of their loved ones at Buena Vida.
