Skilled Nursing FAQs

Skilled Nursing includes a host of medical professionals and therapists delivering a resident-specific 24/7 program of health services. Long-term Skilled Nursing is for the treatment of acute illness. When a senior’s medical needs can’t be met at home or in outpatient care, Long-term Skilled Nursing is the practical financial solution; in contrast, Short-term Skilled Nursing (aka Rehabilitation) is a specialized subset of Skilled Nursing, and while it stands on its own, it’s often located within — or adjacent to — a Skilled Nursing residence.

Long-term Skilled Nursing can be more practical financially when a senior can’t receive necessary care at home. Short-term Skilled Nursing most often occurs after a hospital stay, for instance for surgery, or if a resident needs IV antibiotic therapy, or to transition from intense hospital care to a slightly lower level of nursing care. In these cases, it’s common for residents to eventually transition back to home or to Creekside Assisted Living.

Staff members include RNs (registered nurses), nurse practitioners, a full-time Life Enrichment coordinator, a consultant dietician and a variety of certified specialists. We have a comprehensive rehabilitation team that includes occupational, physical and speech therapists. Each Long-term Skilled Nursing resident receives a full-time personalized program provided on site through The Heights Health Care, our 24/7 licensed care center.

Skilled Nursing is charged by the day, depending on the care provided and room selected. Services are usually paid for by one or a combination of Medicare, Medicaid, supplementary insurance(s), veterans benefits and long-term insurance (depending on the policy).
