Bariatric Skilled Nursing Facilities

Obese seniors may need to receive weight loss care at a Bariatric Skilled Nursing Facility.Β  Bariatric Care services are weight management services for senior residents with obesity (senior who are over 350 lbs). The facility has the means to rehabilitate, accommodate, and meet the needs of the senior. Your senior loved one may need special equipment, and the bariatric care facility will be able to assist the needs of the senior.

Many Bariatric Skilled Nursing Facilities offer a multi-disciplinary approach to weight loss. Since there are over 127 million adults who are overweight, and 400,000 obesity related deaths each year, it is important to get the care that your senior loved one may need. It is important to get Bariatric care for a senior who is obese because obesity worsens health and the quality of life, obesity has been associated with a decrease in life expectancy, and there may be many health problems that can occur from obesity. Morbid obesity can cause physical and emotional issues for senior. Some illnesses include high cholesterol, diabetes, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, joint pain, incontinence, depression, and many other illnesses and diseases. The benefit of losing weight and receiving bariatric care services can be that a person is more mobile and functional, as well as being healthier.

Surgery, Nutritional Programs, Social work Services, Physical and Occupational Therapy, and Nursing Services are usually available for residents in a Bariatric Skilled Nursing Facility. There are different types of surgery options for obese seniors to receive. If a seniors BMI is 40 or greater, weight loss surgery may help to better their lives. Malabsorptive surgery, restrictive surgery, or combined surgery may be an option for an obese senior who needs to lose weight. If a senior is considering weight loss surgery, contact the seniors health insurance company to determine if the costs will be covered. If the insurance covers the procedure, speak with insurance company regarding their policies and what you will need to do. Some insurance companies require in depth information regarding the health of the individual and written documentation from a doctor. If your insurance company does not cover weight loss surgery, the other option is self-pay.

Bariatric care services often include weight loss through the means of a nutritional program including a broad range of dietary services to meet the needs of the resident. Some plans include a healthier dietary plan, portion control, food preparation training, and ways to control dietary urges to maintain a healthier lifestyle. There are also counseling services available to the residents who need to talk with someone regarding their life choices, their individuals needs, and emotional issues they may be having. These supportive services provide guidance, suggestions, support, and help for a new way of life. The therapy offered in Bariatric facilities include physical and occupational therapy focusing on improving the strength, mobility, endurance, and independence. Most obese individuals need help to safely live independently at home, or to transition into senior housing. The senior residents receive exercise plans that they can implement in their home or new facility, as well as, possible referrals to outpatient care services. While in bariatric care, seniors receive specialized nursing services, medications and treatments, and personalized care. The bariatric skilled nursing facility can help your loved one live safely and comfortably, and may be able to change their life.

    I have a pt who is on a vent @ noc, and progressing with therapies. Trach during the day. This pt has been hospitalized for several months so is now homeless, is almost 500 pounds and vent dependent at night. I’ve called all over (including outside of Texas) and have come up with a bunch of ‘no’s’. She has insurance, but I’m afraid she will plateau in her ability to wean @ noc and will become custodial. she resided alone and has no family. Please help if you know of any place in the US. Thx!

    • Posted November 14, 2014 at 6:33 pm | Permalink

      Hi Terry, in and around Texas we’re unable to find a facility that could help. Some of this has been due to Texas closing facilities from underfunding by the state. Hope this changes soon.

    Hi I’m a 58 yo male weighing approximately 450 pounds. I have been bed ridden since February 2012. I am not diabetic, I don’t have any respiratory problems. Vitals are always pretty stable. Have always been a big person up on my feet working I weighed 385 and stood 6′ tall. Was fairly active but could have been more weight aware. Started having trouble with LEGS in 2007 gradually loosing the ability to stand over the years. I live in the Oklahoma city area and have had problems being staffed with home health. Living at home is becoming mentally strenuous have considered going to a nursing home, but one offering bariatric care and rehabilitation has not yet been located! Reading other testimonials I’m learning that the bariatric community is a forgotten community. Some people like myself have always been big and this is not due to over eating or lack of exercise but simply this is the way God made us. I’m sure that many of us would have loved to have had slim tri m fit bodies but sometimes all the exercise and dieting in the world will not change that. Up on my feet I dedicated my life to taking care of other people in nursing homes, home health and even in the military and now when I need some help to help myself have a better quality of life all doors are shut to me. I’m not asking for pity or sorrow I’m asking for help and possibly rehabilitation to get back on my feet and be able to transfer myself from bed to chair and vice versa. News media and television always shows skinny people in work out videos. They are not the ones needing the help they are already skinny! All these nursing facilities across the country and only a hand full catering to the bariatric community! So sad!

    I have a 40 year old patient who weighs in excess of 500 pounds and has not gotten out of bed in several years. She went to a regular nursing home and lost about 100 pounds while there, but has regained it and then some since leaving. I think she could benefit from a bariatric facility but can’t find one in Maine. She is in Bangor, which is about 3 hours north of the Maine/New Hampshire border.
