The Basics of Skilled Nursing Facilities
For those who require 24-hour skilled care, a skilled nursing facility is usually the best option.
However, some people who think they may need a skilled nursing facility can do quite well in some assisted living homes.
Here are a few examples of when skilled nursing care is needed:
- Rehabilitation care due to fractures or joint replacements
- General wound care
- Acute medical conditions
- Interim medical care following a hospital stay
- Respiratory care
- Parkinson’s care
- Terminal illness care (in cooperation with hospice)
- Stroke recovery
- General rehabilitation due to weakness or physical decline
- Diabetic rehabilitation
