Our Mission


CAHF's mission is to provide leadership, advocacy and education for long-term health-care professionals who serve the needs of California residents and to promote integration of the health-care continuum to ensure patient placement at the most appropriate and cost-effective level. With a focus on the consumer, CAHF serves as a catalyst and partner with other health care providers to promote and support excellence and integrity.

 

Who We Serve

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/IID" (intellectual disabilities), 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.
