Healthcare reform, changing demographics and medical technology have prompted the establishment of in-home care services, independent and assisted living communities, nursing home facilities and rehabilitation centers to keep pace with market healthcare needs. These facilities offer a continuum of care from short-term, sub-acute care and rehabilitation with discharge to home to long-term care for chronic disease management.
