Skilled Nursing Facilities/Long-Term Care
We listen, we guide and we follow-up to ensure that you find the home that is perfect for you.
Typical Services Offered:
Skilled nursing cost is dependent on whether the stay is short-term or long-term. Most short-term care is covered by Medicare for those who are eligible. Long-term care cost is affected by whether the room is private or semi-private and the location of the community. Long-term care is typically private pay or covered by long-term health insurance, if applicable.
Skilled nursing facilities, also called nursing homes, are most appropriate for people who need 24-hour medical oversight and a protective/structured setting. Residents may have medical and behavioral needs that cannot be met in other care settings. Nursing facilities offer intensive, long-term, medical care for seniors with serious health conditions such as cardiac and respiratory diseases or who are recovering from a serious injury such as a hip fracture. Services are offered in a fully staffed and monitored environment
A nursing home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital. Nursing homes provide what is called custodial care, including getting in and out of bed, and providing assistance with feeding, bathing, and dressing. However, nursing homes differ from other senior housing facilities in that they also provide a high level of medical care.
A licensed physician supervises each patient’s care and a nurse or other medical professional is almost always on the premises. Skilled nursing care is available on site, usually 24 hours a day. Other medical professionals, such as occupational or physical therapists, are also available. This allows the delivery of medical procedures and therapies on site that would not be possible in other housing.
