What is skilled care? 

Skilled care is provided to individuals who need assistance from nursing or rehabilitation professionals to help them manage a range of daily care and services.

Skilled care is often recommended for short periods of time for patients of all ages after they’ve undergone hospitalization for either an elective or unplanned procedure. Some skilled care residents require longer stays, and Prestige communities accommodate a range of care and recovery needs to help individuals before they are ready to return to their daily routine at home.

Some examples of skilled care include physical therapy, rehabilitative care, speech therapy, occupational therapy and palliative care – they are all a part of Prestige’s complete continuum of care which matches residents with the right level of care as they age or recover.

What should I look for in a skilled nursing community? 

Choosing the right skilled nursing community is an important and personal decision for you and your family. At Prestige, we recommend considering several factors that reflect the community’s clinical expertise, philosophy of care, general atmosphere and even location.

We provide a complete list of questions we strongly encourage you to ask yourself and potential caregivers as you consider the skilled nursing solution that’s right for you and your family. Download our free checklist here.

Is a skilled nursing community the same thing as a nursing home? 

In short, yes. But a quick tour around a Prestige skilled nursing community will demonstrate the vibrant and interactive atmosphere of our communities that’s not characteristic of some nursing homes of yesteryear. While skilled nursing focuses on shorter stays and rehabilitative care, Prestige also offers assisted and independent living solutions for seniors looking for a range of long-term living assistance. Across the Prestige family of care communities, restaurant-style dining, private rooms and a caring staff make the Prestige experience feel more like a well-deserved retreat from life’s obligations.

What are some examples of the care services proveded in a skilled nursing community? 

Skilled nursing communities can specialize in a range of services – some are highly specialized in speech therapy or occupational therapy, for example, so care services are tailored according to each individual’s rehabilitative needs.

Many Prestige skilled nursing communities specialize in rehabilitation services for those recovering from joint-replacement surgery, cardiac surgery, or for those recovering from a stroke. At Prestige, residents play a key role in determining the pace and rigor of their rehabilitative care, always with the end goal of helping patients recovery fully and quickly. Many of our rehabilitative care residents will tell you that a little hard work goes a long way, and our care staff is committed to challenging residents to regain the strength and energy to help them achieve optimal recovery.

Are there fun activites, too?

You bet. Rehabilitative and skilled care isn’t all work and no play. Our teams of caregivers strive to personalize each resident’s care so that their time at Prestige is comfortable and fulfilling
