Frequently asked questions.
What is skilled nursing?
Skilled nursing within a senior living community provides 24-hour licensed nursing care. This area within a community primarily provides long-term care or rehabilitative therapies for patients and residents who need medical or nursing care and is ideal for those with chronic medical conditions or disabilities, or those in chronic pain, who require round-the-clock care and supervision by licensed skilled nursing professionals.
Is a skilled nursing area of a senior living community like a hospital?
The skilled nursing area of a senior living community is not like a hospital. Many patients and residents utilize this area of care after a hospital stay. While our skilled nursing facility does provide advanced levels of on-going long-term care as well as short-term rehabilitative services, the suites and spaces are designed to be warm and comfortable and reflect a home-like environment.
What’s the difference between hospice and home health?
Home health is specialized medical attention that seniors can receive in their home to help maintain or regain function. South Port Square can help you coordinate this kind of care, or provide on-site skilled nursing care. Hospice provides care for seniors with life-limiting illnesses to help them achieve the highest quality of life once curative treatment is halted.
