Selecting between skilled nursing care and assisted living can be difficult. In case your family member requires, a skilled nursing care facility might be needed:
- Round-the-clock nursing care, particularly if the senior might stray if left unsupervised.
- Assist with meals, personal hygiene, medications and portability.
- More help the senior can no longer live alone or compared to the family or current caregiver can provide.
- Assisted living communities are urged when the senior doesn’t require medical care than can be supplied in their property, but they do need more help.
- Provide meals, housekeeping and transport services whether it’s to the shop, hairdresser/barber or a medical appointment.
- Have a scheduled schedule of events for their families as well as residents that includes crafts and arts, field trips and current events.
- Assist with personal hygiene, dressing and medications.
- Have and/or a resident doctor registered nurse on staff.
