Skilled Nursing

What is Skilled Nursing?

Skilled Nursing Communities are similar to a nursing home however may offer more medical expertise and services.

Services offered in skilled nursing communities target higher levels of care needed by individuals; outside of a hospital setting for health conditions requiring 24/7 monitoring by a medical staff. These nursing communities help people function at the highest level possible, by providing the inpatient care needed to manage chronic illness or conditions or to recover from an illness or surgery.

These communities have doctors, nurses, and health care aides on call and available. They care for individuals recovering from surgery, a hospital stay or ones needing long-term care.

At Aging at 5280, we believe a stay in a nursing community should have compassionate caregivers and be a place of enjoyment, providing residents an opportunity to engage and connect.
