Frequently asked questions about skilled nursing:

Unlike independent living or assisted living communities, a skilled nursing facility offers short- or long-term 24/7 care provided by licensed nurses and therapists, including RNs, LPNs and Certified Nurse Aides. Skilled nursing is a type of care that goes beyond what you’d find at an assisted living facility.

Individuals who need medical care after illness, injury or surgery, post-hospital stay or without hospitalization, can benefit from skilled nursing. Skilled nursing helps with activities of daily living (ADLs) but at a higher level. Some health conditions that could require long-term care include:

  • Stroke
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Fractures
  • Fall-related injury
  • Orthopedic surgeries
  • Permanent disabilities
  • Dementia

Skilled nursing care can be paid for through various methods, including Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance, long-term care insurance, out-of-pocket payment, Veterans benefits, or from personal funds.

It’s important for individuals and their families to explore all available options and plan for long-term care needs in advance. Additionally, consulting with a financial advisor or elder law attorney can provide guidance on navigating payment options and planning for future care needs.
