Direct admission into Skilled Nursing
At Legacy Pointe at UCF in Central Florida, we offer long-term care in a comfortable and social senior living community. With programming and quality of care influenced by UCF’s College of Nursing, you or your loved one will receive the attentive care you should expect from a state-of-the-art skilled nursing center. If you have a loved one who is in need of short-term rehabilitation or long-term nursing care, we’re happy to offer direct admission to new private pay residents. You do not have to be part of our existing Independent Living community to access our skilled nursing care.
Working with each resident’s personal physician, we address individual needs and respect personal preferences. Careful assessment, monitoring and evaluation are all part of our restorative philosophy and compassionate approach.
The quality of health services is enhanced by UCF in multiple disciplines:
- UCF’s College of Health Professions and Sciences will provide guidance on the latest in rehabilitative therapy for Legacy Pointe residents
- UCF’s Social Work Department will provide overall case management and act as a liaison for the patient
- UCF’s College of Science’s Psychology Department will provide ongoing counseling and mental health services
Frequently Asked Questions
Skilled nursing is specifically for those who need either short-term care while recovering after a hospital stay or for seniors who need long-term care. At Legacy Pointe, compassionate health services are provided around-the-clock by licensed professionals trained to administer this high level of care. We also offer custom programs that encourage maximum social interaction and preserve dignity.
Skilled nursing is the right choice for those who require attentive medical care but don’t have the acute needs that make hospitalization necessary. It provides a higher level of care than assisted living, whether the need is for more hands-on assistance with routine activities, rehabilitation services or long-term care.
