What is Skilled Nursing and rehabilitation?

Skilled nursing and rehabilitation care is reserved for individuals with often complex medical needs requiring the "skill" of licensed nurses and therapists. Skilled nursing and rehabilitation is appropriate for seniors recovering from stroke or surgery that need intensive, 7-day a week therapies. In addition, if a resident regularly requires the assistance of another to move from bed to chair, or is confined to bed due to their condition, they are generally more appropriate for the skilled nursing and rehabilitation setting.
