If you need hospitalization or post acute care, Masonicare offers a warm, home-like place to recover in comfort. Our hospital-level Acute Care Unit features a caring, specially trained staff and beautifully appointed rooms where you can focus on recovery.
What is Acute Care?
Post acute care, or acute care recovery, is around-the-clock medical attention to help patients recover from conditions such as:
- Acute MI (heart attack)
- Heart failure
- Unstable angina
- Nutritional deficiencies
At Masonicare in Connecticut, the focus of acute care is to restore seniors to their previous level of function, encouraging self-sufficiency and independent living.
Admissions: Patients can be admitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your primary care physician will make arrangements with Masonicare. Acute care is considered a hospital admission and is covered by Medicare and most insurance providers.
