Skilled Nursing Homes
What is a Skilled Nursing Home?
A Skilled Nursing Home provides the highest level of clinical care, similar to a hospital or rehabilitation facility. Due to the care levels offered, Skilled Nursing home settings are often more “hospital like”, with residents in private or shared rooms, some with communal activity rooms and dining areas. This type of community is an appropriate setting for seniors who have very high levels of clinical care needs.
What to look for in Skilled Nursing Homes
Skilled Nursing facilities are licensed by the state. Some Skilled Nursing Facilities focus primarily on short, rehabilitation stays, while others off long term care. Key when considering Skilled Nursing Homes for long term care is understanding the amenities and activities offered, as these can vary greatly from Nursing Home to Nursing Home. Many are contracted with state Medicaid services for seniors who qualify both financially and with care needs.
