Skilled Nursing Facilities are focused on serving people who require 24/7 medical monitoring and care in addition to assistance with Activities of Daily Living. Often these patients have a serious or debilitating illness.
Medical services provided on-site generally include nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. All meals as well as laundry and housekeeping services are provided. Some Skilled Nursing Facilities have Memory Care units.
Medicare, private long-term care insurance, and Medicaid generally cover the costs of these locations.
