How do I choose Sarah Reed for Short-Term Rehab?

There are several ways to do this. If you have a surgery planned, and anticipate the need for rehab, call us with your surgery date. We will work with the hospital to admit you to our rehab unit based on availability. If you have an unplanned surgery or illness and are hospitalized, simply ask your hospital discharge planner to contact Sarah Reed. It’s that simple!

Is Personal Care and Assisted Living the same thing?

For many years, Pennsylvania did not recognize a distinction between these two types of care and the terms were often interchangeable. Pennsylvania adopted a law making these two distinct types of facilities. However, many people continue to use these terms interchangeably. Sarah Reed Senior Living is a licensed Personal Care Home.

Is there a waiting list? How long is it? How do I get on it?

Yes. Because we have an excellent reputation, we often have a waiting list for long term nursing, our memory support unit, and our apartments with personal care services. Don’t let that stop you from calling us or applying! The list is constantly changing due to changing needs of our current residents, as well as changing needs of those on the list, so the answer to how long it is also is constantly changing! Get on the waiting list by filling out an application. Download, complete, and mail it to us. We will call you when it is reviewed. Or visit the contact page to set up a tour.

How do I pay for my care?

Residential Apartments, Personal Care, and our Memory Support Unit are all private pay and are not covered under Medicare or Medicaid. Some long term care insurance policies may help you pay for this level of care.
