Health Care Services
Charter House is a registered Continuing Care Retirement Community in Rochester, MN
"We liked the concept of a community that was complete. We wanted to make decisions about our future as a couple. Odds are we'll have some medical needs in the future. At Charter House, we won't have to worry about it — and neither will our children."
Health care services at Charter House are designed to meet your needs as they arise. As a Continuing Care Retirement Community, Charter House offers access to the health care services you need — all under one roof. This range of services, called a continuum of care, is provided by a team of health care professionals that is available for consultation as your needs change. The goal is to allow you maximum independence in each of our venues within Charter House, while maintaining your safety, quality of life and good health.
Home Health Services
The goal of Home Health is to help you maintain good health and wellness, and remain in your retirement apartment as long as possible. Early engagement with our Home Health agency is key; it allows time for you to establish a relationship with a Home Health Registered Nurse Case Manager who will work with you and coordinate with your physician to understand your unique needs, goals, and medical history. The Registered Nurse Case Manager utilizes evidence based best practices to assure a high quality personalized plan of care. The Home Health program is based on a proactive wellness approach rather than a passive approach, and assures that experienced, knowledgeable nursing staff advocates and supports you to achieve your wellness goals.
Home Health services are provided under our Minnesota Comprehensive license and Medicare Certified Comprehensive license.
