Skilled Nursing Facilities
A Skilled Nursing Facility, or Nursing Home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital. Nursing homes provide custodial care, including getting in and out of bed, and providing assistance with feeding, bathing and dressing.
However, skilled nursing facilities 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.
