It is a great idea for those that can afford it without the assistance of Medicare or health insurance. Mayo needs something better than Charlton House for the people that are coming from out of town or do not have sufficient care givers at home during the recovery phase. Something more adaptable, where patients do not have to experience small town Minnesota prejudices.

Doesn't Rochester have a transitional care unit for people after surgery?

The transitional care unit is the skilled nursing unit in Charlton House. The beds are uncomfortable and 99 percent of the people have Medicare paying for it. It is not designed for a younger person that needs a place to recuperate in the short-term. The skilled nursing mainly has people with multiple issues and some are there for months. It also mainly caters to people in the surrounding areas and is part of the package for Mayo employees.

It's CHARTER House. And it's a retirement community that offers assisted living. It's not meant to be for transitional care. Nor is it only for Mayo employees.

Check out the skilled nursing department in that building. It is skilled nursing for older people that have multiple issues and part of the Mayo health plan for employees. I do apologize for writing Charlton instead of Charter. I stayed their after my hip replacement over 2 years ago. I did not have enough support at home to help during my early recovery phase. I was the youngest person on the floor. I had to give Charter House skilled nursing 4500 dollars, because Charter House was not in my insurance network. My insurance did a few months later, cover my whole stay. Even though Charter House is in some forms part of the Mayo system, they have much more limited contracts with insurance providers. Almost all the people there were on Medicare or were Mayo employees that had orthopedic surgery or infections. Check it out for yourself.
