FAQs about Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation
What is short-term rehabilitation?
Short-term nursing and rehabilitation care centers provide housing, medical and rehabilitative therapies to people of all ages recovering from illness, injury or surgery in order to successfully transition from an acute care hospital stay to home. Rehabilitative therapies provided at short-term rehab centers may include physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapy. Short-term rehabilitation may also be referred to as “skilled nursing care”. Care and therapies provided in this setting may be covered by Medicare.
What are the different levels of nursing care available?
Skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers are for those recovering from illness, injury or surgery. Many patients need additional medical and rehabilitative therapies before successfully transitioning from hospital to home. Some choose to make a skilled nursing center their permanent home. Typically, this means residents need medical supervision and support that can no longer be provided at home safely. Many times patients transitioning home from a hospital or skilled nursing center still need some medical and rehabilitative support. Home care can provide this assistance along with medication management, education about a newly diagnosed disease, lifestyle changes and IV care. Assisted living centers are designed for those who still want to retain their independence but need some assistance with taking medications, bathing, dressing or meal preparation. Some assisted living centers are specifically for patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Programming is focused on maintaining skills and retaining quality of life. Hospice care is available for patients diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. Hospice can provide the physical, emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families to help work through this challenging time.
What should I look for when selecting a hospice care provider?
Hospice providers should ensure that your loved one spends his or her final days in comfort. Ask the agency about staff knowledge. Do they have volunteers and counselors trained for your specific needs? Are they focused on meeting your loved one’s and family’s wishes? Will they provide support for mind, body and spirit? Do they have testimonials from satisfied families? Can you speak to them? Are they CHAP-accredited?

What should I look for when choosing a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center?
For short-term stays focused on rehabbing a patient returning home, ask the center about its successful outcomes treating patients with your or your loved one’s illness, injury or disease. Ask about the staff’s knowledge about post-hospital care. Tour the center to get a feel for cleanliness, friendliness of staff and amenities that are important to you. Ask to sample food and visit with patients similar to you or your loved one.
