A Primary Care TEAM That Comes To You
Care Coordination; Long-Term Care Management
As patients get older, they become more susceptible to certain health risks such as heart disease, cancer, cognitive decline, and falls that can result in serious injury. If your loved one is facing these risks, you and your family may be considering assisted living facilities as a way to preserve their health and safety – but you may also be concerned about maintaining the quality of your aging loved one’s primary health care.

We’re here to support both patients and their families, working to answer questions, address concerns, and ensuring that the patient’s care progresses smoothly.

One-On-One Care for Patients in Long-Term Living
For the families of patients who are in long-term living facilities, it can be difficult to trust that your loved one is getting the high-quality, one-on-one care they deserve.

If your loved one is in a long-term living facility, we’ll continue caring for them there as well. This doesn’t just involve being there in your loved one’s room – it involves coordinating with the team at the facility, sharing information that can benefit your loved one, and being a support to your family throughout the patient’s life.
If you’d like to learn more about our long-term living services and the way we coordinate care, schedule an appointment with us, or reach out to our friendly, knowledgeable staff. We’re happy to answer your questions and give you peace of mind.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a nursing home and long-term care?
For most patients, a nursing home is a temporary location in which they can receive continuous support and care until they no longer need it. For patients in long-term care facilities, this is a long-term residence that allows the patient to be cared for and assisted, most likely for the duration of their life.

Yes! PT Family Medicine believes in accessible primary care, and we’re proud to accept insurance from a number of providers across the Pittsburgh area. Visit our page to view our list of accepted providers, and reach out to us with any questions you have about your coverage.
