What Is Skilled Nursing?
Sometimes we never know what life’s going to hand us, especially as it relates to health. There are times when you may need the skilled and advanced medical resources you can find at a hospital but in a home-like setting, such as after you’ve had joint replacement surgery, experienced a stroke, are dealing with a respiratory illness or Parkinson’s disease.
Nursing homes, also called skilled nursing facilities, provide the round-the-clock, expert nursing care and daily assistance seniors in these situations need. At Brookdale, our nursing homes have staff on duty 24 hours a day to help individuals with whatever they need. This assistance ranges from simple daily activities like getting dressed in the morning, to more advanced medical, like severe wounded care. Our nursing homes have a licensed physician that supervises each resident’s care as well as therapy services available including speech, occupational, and physical therapy.
When you stay at one of our skilled nursing care and rehabilitation communities, you’ll enjoy an atmosphere that is calm and comfortable. Our skilled nursing homes are designed to promote nursing and rehabilitation in a high-quality and compassionate environment. From rehabilitation to therapy to wound care, we offer a wide range of services. So no matter what your needs are, there’s a good chance that we can provide the right care, whether it’s for a short-term or long-term stay.
