Why Skilled Nursing?

It can be difficult to understand when a higher level of care is necessary. In general, skilled nursing is a temporary situation — for instance, if an individual has been recently hospitalized or has suffered a significant decline in health, then skilled nursing may be a good solution for recovery. Applewood’s licensed nurses will focus on rehabilitation, with the intention of helping the resident prepare for their return to independent living.

Assisted living refers more toward providing general assistance for residents. This means assistance with aspects of life, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, even medications and meal preparation. It is not intended to be temporary, but rather to provide residents the ability to continue to enjoy their lives, set their own schedules and pursue their own interests and hobbies, with the security of knowing that you or your loved one will have the assistance needed, when they need it.
