Skilled Nursing describes an elevated level of medical care that can only be provided by a licensed medical professional. Although many nursing homes provide skilled nursing, Sunrise Senior Living health care centers are designed to promote residents’ emotional health and physical well-being through a range of rehabilitative therapies. Sunrise’s Skilled Nursing philosophy is to restore each resident as quickly as possible to his or her highest level of functioning and independence.
Our comprehensive approach to nursing and rehabilitation care and support services provides quality, 24-hour skilled nursing care while preserving every resident’s dignity and respecting their wishes. Sunrise Senior Living communities generally offer post-hospital and post-surgical care, restorative care in comfortable, private or semi-private, senior-friendly accommodations. Our team members also coordinate physician and pharmacy services, including transportation. Additional skilled nursing services and amenities may vary by location.
Physical, occupational and speech therapies aim to restore quality of life through independence and self-esteem. Sunrise also provides therapeutic and specialized dietary services, plus three nutritious meals a day and snacks, along with choices in social and recreational programming and activities.
When you are considering a nursing home for your loved one, it’s important that you discuss the means of communication about your family member’s wellness. We believe family counseling is an integral component of providing senior care, and we offer family members information, options and support in a sympathetic environment.
