Frequently asked questions.
What is skilled nursing?
Skilled nursing care, also sometimes called long-term care, is for residents who need an advanced level of ongoing, 24-hour care that can only be provided by licensed nurses. Residents may need post-hospital care, wound care, intravenous therapy, catheter care, or other health care services. People staying in skilled nursing for short-term rehabilitation may also require skilled nursing and can receive inpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy.

Is a skilled nursing area of a senior living community like a hospital?
The skilled nursing area of a senior living community is not like a hospital. Many patients and residents utilize this area of care after a hospital stay. While this area of the community does provide advanced levels of on-going long-term care as well as short-term rehabilitative services, the suites and spaces are designed to be warm and comfortable and reflect a home-like environment.
