Choosing a Skilled Nursing Facility

Important questions to ask when touring a skilled nursing facility:

  • What kind of therapies are offered at the facility?
  • How often will my family member receive therapy?
  • What physician will follow my loved one's care at your facility?
  • What portion of the expense will my insurance cover?
  • What activities do you offer?
  • How do you coordinate the staffing at your facility?
  • How often do you shower the residents at your facility?
  • How and where are meals provided?
  • How will I know when my family member is ready to discharge from your facility?
  • If my loved one needs long term care is there an available bed?
  • What are your visiting hours?

Things to consider when choosing a skilled nursing facility:

  • Proximity to home — is the distance something you are willing to commute regularly?
  • Insurance — does the facility accept payment from your primary and secondary insurances?
  • Length of stay — if you need to stay long term, does the facility you are considering accept long term patients?
  • Services — does the facility offer the services you will be requiring during your stay?
