What Are Skilled Nursing Senior Living Homes?

Skilled nursing senior living homes are for seniors who need regular medical care, like an IV, a ventilator, or other 24/7 medical treatment. In this senior living option, trained nurses are on hand around the clock so that your loved one is constantly monitored. Living in a skilled nursing senior living home is a level of care that is often temporary; it usually only lasts until the resident is ready to return home or back to assisted living.

This senior living option differs from assisted living in that it offers more medical care. Assisted living residents might only need medical care a few times a week, and rely on other team members for help with daily living activities like getting dressed or taking medications. However, in skilled nursing homes, residents have access to medical care at all times. This can provide peace of mind to families as their loved ones recover from a medical procedure or a health condition. Skilled nursing senior living programs can also benefit those who require ongoing therapy.

Skilled Nursing Senior Living Homes at Discovery Village

How can you decide if a skilled nursing senior living home is the right fit for you or your loved one? Consider the following questions as a guide:

  • Does your loved one need constant care due to chronic conditions or deteriorating health?
  • Is your loved one no longer able to feed themselves independently?
  • Has your loved one experienced an injury? Do they need significant rehabilitation?
  • Do you or your loved one prefer amenities like nutritious meals and on-site services like salons, religious services, and dental appointments that are not available in a home-care setting?
  • Does your loved one desire more daily interaction than in-home nursing care can provide?
  • Does your loved one have a progressive condition like Parkinson’s disease or MS?
