Schuylkill County Board of Commissioners Propose Rate Hike for Rest Haven

The Schuylkill County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to vote on proposed room and board rate hikes for Rest Haven Nursing Home in Schuylkill Haven at the July 25 public meeting.

According to an article on the RepublicanHerald.com, this will be the first increase since November 2009.

If the rates are approved, they will increase from $250 per day each to $325 for a private room, $300 for a semi-private room (with 3 beds), $275 for a room with four beds, and $300 for an Alzheimer’s unit. The rate hike would take place in September.

With 142 beds, Rest Haven provides nursing care, social services, rehabilitation, therapeutic activities, pastoral services, and specialized services in their Alzheimer’s/Dementia Unit. The facility also provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and a restorative nursing program.
