When is skilled nursing appropriate?

Sometimes an injury or illness will create a need for rehabilitation or a temporary stay at a skilled nursing facility, which may be an intermediate stop before a patient is able to return home.  Other times, the need for care might be long term.  Either way, Grapevine Medical Lodge provides the trusted care your loved one needs, with all the comforts of home.

When is it time to consider long term skilled nursing care?

Residential nursing care might be appropriate when your loved one:

  • needs frequent daily medical attention
  • is not mobile or has great difficulty moving
  • is no longer eating appropriately
  • fails to practice proper hygiene/self-care
