Considering a skilled nursing facility is never easy. We understand. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of resources to arm you with the information you need to make a sound decision for your loved one.

How will you know exactly the level of care your loved one needs? A skilled nursing care facility may be needed if your family member requires:
•    round-the-clock nursing care, particularly if the senior might stray if left unsupervised
•    assistance with meals, personal hygiene, medications and portability
•    more help than the family or present caregiver can provide or the senior can no longer live alone
