Skilled Nursing

In 2020, 1.3 million people lived in 15,300 nursing homes throughout the United States. Although not all older persons require short- or long-term care, 35% receive care in nursing centers. Analysts expect that demand for long-term care and skilled nursing facilities will remain high as the population ages. 

Although family members may wish to care for older family members, it can be challenging to provide the level of care and attention needed, particularly if those family members are recovering from medical issues. Moving family members with medical needs to skilled nursing facilities gives family members peace of mind because they can be confident their loved ones are receiving the expert care they require.

What Are Skilled Nursing Facilities?

Some individuals require medical care at a nursing and rehabilitation center. Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) have doctors who can diagnose patients and prescribe treatments and licensed nurses who provide direct patient care. In this respect, staying in a rehabilitation and nursing center is comparable to staying in a long-term care unit in a hospital.

Benefits of Skilled Nursing Facilities

Individuals living in regular nursing homes may see a doctor once every three or four months. However, SNF residents have continued access to licensed medical professionals who oversee their care. Access to medical staff ensures patients receive prompt, appropriate treatment. 

In addition to personal care and daily activities, skilled nursing facilities provide all or some of the following services:

  • Cardiac care
  • Diabetes management
  • Dietary counseling
  • Infectious disease management
  • IV therapy
  • Medication management
  • Speech therapy
  • Surgery
  • Tube feedings

Occupational therapists help patients recover motor skills or learn to use assistive devices to regain independence.

Our physical therapy clinics deliver expert care for those who need to regain their motor skills. Surgery, injuries, and illnesses can affect a person’s ability to walk or limit their range of motion. Physical therapists develop treatment programs designed to help individuals improve their mobility. Physical therapists also help those who need to manage pain.

Individuals may struggle with verbal and written communication after a stroke or other health issues.
