Generations Healthcare Network is the ideal choice for both short-term and long-term nursing care needs. As a skilled nursing and sub-acute care facility, we provide advanced nursing competency with compassionate care in a family-like setting.
What is Skilled Nursing?
Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are residences for those who need short-term care following a hospital stay or long-term nursing supervision because of health issues or disabilities. Residents are under the care of physicians, who visit regularly and are responsible for the residents’ overall plan of care.
- Bariatric care
- Diabetes management
- Intravenous care (IV therapy)
- Pain management
- Parenteral nutrition care
- Respiratory care, tracheostomy and oxygen therapy
- Restorative care
- Wound care
Who Should Participate in Skilled Nursing?
A skilled nursing care facility may be needed if you or your family member requires 24-hour nursing care or assistance with meals, personal hygiene, and/or medications. Skilled nursing may also be necessary for those who require more help than present caregivers can provide, or if he/she can no longer live alone. Examples of when skilled nursing care is needed include:
- Rehabilitation care due to fractures or joint replacements
- General wound care
- Acute medical conditions
- Interim medical care following a hospital stay
- Respiratory care
- Parkinson’s care
- Terminal illness care (in cooperation with hospice)
- Stroke recovery
- General rehabilitation due to weakness or physical decline
