Long term nursing home care is appropriate for individuals with complex and potentially serious medical conditions such as wound dressings, breathing rehabilitation, tube feedings, or those with rapidly changing health status’ or persistent health issues which cannot be managed at home or in other settings. Sometimes individuals require skilled nursing on a temporary basis due to an injury or illness.
At United Methodist Communities skilled nursing comprises the most intensive and highest care level provided to our residents in the same overall campus as the assisted and independent living residences.
