Casa Olga Intermediate Care Facility to close
San Francisco Chronicle, August 24, 2009
Casa Olga Intermediate Care Facility in Palo Alto, CA, a 35-year-old center that provides care to psychiatric patients, began the difficult process recently of telling its 88 residents that it would have to shut down in three months because of the economic impact of state budget cuts. The private, for-profit center is in a relatively small category of facilities that provides inpatient intermediate care for people who cannot live independently but do not need the higher-level, continuous medical services provided by skilled nursing homes.
