OTHER WAYS TO HELP: Beechwood is a home primarily for people with a variety of neurological conditions, most of which are degenerative and incurable. Beechwood strives to provide the highest level of care possible to enable our residents the optimum quality of life and allow them to retain as much independence and dignity as possible. To do this, we must provide expensive high-tech equipment, which includes training, and maintenance. In the past, we have relied on funding from Medicaid or other third-party payors. This requires many hours of documentation and justifications. We are challenged with the Medicaid funding each year, in fact, our current reimbursement is the same today as it was in 2003. This financial detriment has had a definite impact on the amount of dollars we need to care for the residents. This year, because our residents rely on the generosity of others to provide special therapeutic programs and services, we need your support more than ever. There is a financial gap between our actual Medicaid reimbursement and the facility’s true cost for many residents of The Beechwood Home. It is because of this gap we rely on our fundraising, special events, and our Friends of Beechwood.
