I just got hired on to a health and rehab facility. I'm pleased that I finally have a consistent employment, I just wanted to know if a health and rehab facility would be considered LTC. I've applied to places that won't accept your application if you have not worked LTC. It'd be nice to know if I'm getting the experience that I need. Thanks!

Rehab is like a SNF-Skilled Nursing Facility to get people towards a state of wellness or goal and then be discharged. LTC-Long Term Care--Nursing home where residents live out their days. All are a part of "Healthcare" or nursing home facility. Nursing Home has fell out of favor--seniors don't care for the term but they know what Healthcare means. Who knows what it'll be called as more baby boomers enter them! (I'm part of that generation myself and thinking that I'm going to want to be in a place with a hip/cool name to it. lol)
