Skilled Nursing Home Placement Services
We Can Help You Choose the Right Nursing Home
Skilled nursing homes, more commonly known simply as nursing homes, are one of the most popular senior housing options. The main difference between skilled nursing facilities and other, more independent types of senior housing options is that they offer 24-hour medical care. Skilled nursing homes have medical professionals, including nurses, doctors, and other practitioners on staff.

What to Look for When Selecting a Nursing Home
Most people’s main concern when choosing a skilled nursing home for their loved one is safety. You want to know that your loved one is being properly cared for in an environment that is not merely acceptable, but ideal. While our advisors can help you narrow down your options in selecting a fantastic nursing home, we always recommend that you tour the home yourself, whenever possible.
There are a few things to look for when touring a nursing home, including:
- The general cleanliness and condition of the facility
- The overall demeanor of the staff and residents
- Number of nurses, doctors, and other staff present
- Available activities and amenities for residents
- Unusual, unpleasant odors or signs of sanitary problems
- General upkeep of the building, rooms, and other areas
When selecting a skilled nursing home for your loved one, it’s always wise to trust your instincts. Our Oasis advisors can help you find the perfect option that suits your exact needs.
