They have brought together various healthcare providers to offer education and access to professionals in fields ranging from post-surgical recovery to end of life care. In a Carnival setting to mix in a little fun and bring smiles to the faces of the attendees.

When asked why the event was so important Ventura Post Acute, Administrator Renee Jones commented “The options for post hospital care are not always known to seniors before they are in crisis and this lack of knowledge can make a medical episode even scarier. By providing the opportunity to see the warmth in a Post Acute and rehabilitation facility like ours and have access to ask questions to healthcare providers ahead of time, gives senior more control over their long and short-term care needs.”
