Is skilled nursing different than our in-home care services?
Skilled nursing is different than traditional home care services. In-home care services target healthy seniors, who don’t need medical attention. Sometimes you can meet their needs by yourself or hire a professional caregiver to assist them with daily tasks.
Skilled nursing, on the other hand, is a service for patients who don’t find a family caregiver or home health aide enough to meet all the needs. It includes advanced medical tasks, usually performed at nursing homes and hospitals.
Have in mind that the list of the medical tasks performed by skilled nurses is not limited only to those enlisted above. Throughout the certification process and experience working with different patients, they have learned to adapt to every patient. At Next Misison Home Healthcare we know each senior is different and requires customized care.
Skilled nurses allow seniors to stay in their homes and still receive the medical care they need – skilled nursing.
