SKILLED CARE Centers
Is a skilled care center the best option for my loved one?
Skilled Care Centers, as the name implies, provide skilled care for patients with various medical needs. In choosing whether or not to place your loved one in a skilled care center will largely depend on their health and general well-being. Our facilities provide around the clock care for your loved one and have doctors on staff that will do checkups on patients and provide medical care such as medications, prosthetics, and physical therapy if needed. Skilled care centers or "nursing homes," as you may know them by, are sometimes viewed with a certain amount of disdain but you can rest assured that regulations are in place and the facilities are checked for compliance regularly.
