When it comes to exploring your options for skilled nursing facilities for yourself or a loved one, there’s a lot you need to know. Skilled nursing is complex, high-level medical care provided under the supervision of a team of medical professionals, including doctors, nurses and specialists. Skilled nursing typically involves short- or long-term nursing care in a hospital, rehabilitation center, or skilled nursing facility. The skilled nursing facility may be within a senior living community that offers independent living and a full continuum of care.
Skilled nursing care can include any of the following:
It’s common for individuals to need some form of short-term skilled nursing care when recovering after a surgery or procedure to build up strength before returning home.
While some seniors prefer to return home after a hospital stay immediately, there are many benefits to short-term skilled nursing care. The professional services, individualized attention, and insurance coverage are all reasons to seriously consider choosing short-term skilled nursing care for yourself or your loved one.
Here are some often-overlooked additional benefits to opting for short-term skilled nursing care in a senior living community:
Full-service senior living communities offer various levels of living that may include independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing/rehab. Such communities provide a wide range of amenities and services to appeal to those in every level of living. The emphasis is on whole-person wellness and a vibrant lifestyle; the community does all it can to help each resident maintain their independence for as long as possible. And those who need short or long-term care at any level will find the care and support they need right on the same campus.
Whether you’re a long-term skilled nursing resident or a short-term skilled nursing guest, these communities provide everyone with comfortable accommodations, assistance with activities of daily living, and targeted therapies and treatments to improve quality of life.
