Nursing Homes (SNF)

Skilled nursing facilities, also known as nursing homes, are licensed healthcare residences for individuals who require a higher level of medical care than can be provided in an assisted living facility. Skilled nursing facilities provide:

  • Assistance with health conditions requiring constant supervision on an inpatient basis.
  • 24 hour/day availability of licensed staff who provide both skilled nursing care and assistance with personal care needs.
  • On-site physical, occupational, and rehabilitative therapeutic services.
  • Short-term rehabilitation or long-term care.
