Benefits of Skilled Nursing

Being able to recover not far from home and in a comfortable environment is ideal. No one wants to spend more time than necessary in a hospital or clinical environment, if possible. In fact, there are many emotional and psychological benefits to this level of care. Skilled Nursing is generally recommended following being treated in the hospital for a serious medical condition that has left you unable to function completely on your own. Sometimes you may need to relearn basic skills like walking, standing, speaking, and even getting dressed. Doing this on your own is really not an option.

Here are just a few reasons to consider Skilled Nursing for yourself or a loved one:

  • A lowers risk of being readmitted to the hospital.
  • Specialized therapies to address the physical, occupational, and speech needs as part of recovery.
  • The benefits of being among peers going through similar experiences.
  • Peace of mind that comes with knowing you have around-the-clock care.
  • Healthy meals included. Our staff ensures every senior in our care eats nutritious, delicious meals.

Skilled Nursing is also included as part of Medicare-covered services. Medicare will cover:

  • Food at the facility (three meals a day), plus dietary counseling
  • A semi-private room shared with other patients
  • Physical, occupational, and/or speech therapies that are needed to fully rehabilitate
  • Social services
  • Medication and medication management
  • Medical supplies and equipment while in the facility
  • Transportation by ambulance when medically necessary to transport you to the hospital
