Generations at Elmwood Park is the ideal choice for both short-term and long-term nursing care needs. As a skilled nursing and sub-acute care facility, we provide advanced nursing competency with compassionate care in a family-like setting.
What is Skilled Nursing?
Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are residences for those who need short-term care following a hospital stay or long-term nursing supervision because of health issues or disabilities. Residents are under the care of physicians who visit regularly and are responsible for the residents’ overall plan of care.
Who Should Participate in Skilled Nursing?
A skilled nursing care facility may be needed if you or your family member requires 24-hour nursing care or assistance with meals, personal hygiene, and/or medications. Skilled nursing may also be necessary for those who require more help than present caregivers can provide, or who can no longer live alone. Examples of when skilled nursing care is needed include:
- Rehabilitation care due to fractures or joint replacements
- General wound care
- Acute medical conditions
- Interim medical care following a hospital stay
- Respiratory care
- Parkinson’s care
- Terminal illness care (in cooperation with hospice)
- Stroke recovery
- General rehabilitation due to weakness or physical decline
