Welcome to the San Bernardino/Riverside Chapter of CAHF. This chapter serves providers in the Inyo, Mono, Riverside and San Bernardino counties of California.
CAHF's members include:
Skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs) – Sometimes called "nursing homes" or "convalescent hospitals," these facilities provide comprehensive nursing care for chronically ill or short-term residents of all ages, along with rehabilitation and specialized medical programs.
Subacute-care facilities – Specialized units often in a distinct part of a nursing facility, subacute-care facilities focus on intensive rehabilitation, complex wound care and post-surgical recovery for residents of all ages who no longer need the level of care found in a hospital.
Intermediate-care facilities (ICFs) – In addition to room and board, these facilities provide regular medical, nursing, social and rehabilitative services for people not capable of full independent living.
Intermediate-care facilities for persons with developmental disabilities (ICFs/DD) – Known at the federal level as "ICFs/MR" (mental retardation), these facilities provide services for people of all ages with developmental disabilities. ICFs/DD-H (habilitative), ICFs/DD-CN (chronic nursing) and ICFs/DD-N (nursing) have home-like settings with an average of six beds. ICFs/DD are larger homes with 16 or more beds.
Institutes for mental health (SNF/STPs) – Designated in California as "special treatment programs," these facilities provide extended treatment periods for people of all ages with chronic mental health problems; most of the clients are younger than 65. Specialized staff serve clients in a secured environment.
Products and services providers – Individuals, firms and corporations which provide information, products and services for long-term care facilities and homes are part of CAHF's valuable network of associate (vendor) members.
