Are you or someone you know having difficulty caring for themselves at home?  Do they have problems with maintaining a normal routine?  Are you scared to leave them alone?  Do they fall a lot?  

All of these questions are very normal questions to ask!  If any of the above situations apply to you or someone you know give us a call!  Rosewood Rehabilitation and Care Center may be able to help. 

Another big question is based on the fact that many people feel they can't afford long-term care because, well, they truly can't.  However, there may be help.  The vast majority of of residents in a nursing facility are covered by what's called Texas Long Term Care Medicaid.  There are two (2) areas of eligibility; one must have a clinical need and a financial need.  

A quick call or visit with our admissions staff and nursing staff will allow us to let you know, in our own professional opinion, if we believe you are someone you know may qualify for Texas Medicaid.  Contacting us is the first step!
