Skilled Nursing

Our skilled nursing facility provides the highest level of care outside of a hospital setting for individuals who have health conditions that require constant monitoring.

 We have doctors, nurses and health care aides available 24 hours a day who provide care for people who are recovering from a surgery, a hospital stay or those that need long-term custodial care. Most skilled nursing communities provide:


  • Post-hospital and post-surgical care
  • Long-term custodial care
  • Medication administration and IV services
  • Individualized care plans
  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Incontinence, catheter & colostomy care
  • Therapeutic and special diets
  • Diabetic management
  • Medicare-certified beds

The primary goal of a skilled nursing facility is to help individuals function at the highest level possible, by providing the care they need to recover from an illness or surgery or to manage a chronic condition.
