Skilled Nursing Care

Skilled Nursing Care


Skilled Nursing Care is for those who need ongoing long-term nursing care or for those who need short-term concentrated rehabilitation while recovering from surgery or an illness. Five Star communities provide the sophisticated medical services and 24-hour supervision needed by residents with serious health challenges. 

Nursing Care Provided By Skilled Nurses Who Care
Whether the need is for long-term nursing care due to illness or injury, or short-term, concentrated rehabilitation while recovering from a surgical procedure or acute medical condition, Five Star provides skilled geriatric health care services 24 hours a day. Regardless of the nature or complexity of the medical care required, our highly trained and compassionate nursing staff stand ready to address our residents’ health care needs and help them on the road to recovery.

From Assisted Living to Skilled Nursing Care and Back
Thanks to our full-service model, Five Star assisted living residents can transition easily to skilled health care if more serious or sophisticated health care services are ever needed. However, our goal is always to keep our elderly residents as independent and healthy as possible, and in the case of short-term rehabilitation, our goal is to return residents to their original living situation as soon as possible.

Short-term Rehabilitation Services
For those needing short-term rehabilitation in a skilled nursing community, Five Star offers care for a range of conditions and situations such as:

•    Short-term medical conditions
•    Joint replacements
•    Wound care
•    Interim care after a hospital stay 
•    Stroke or cardiac recovery

Our comprehensive rehabilitation services include electro-modality technologies to help people with incontinence or pain management problems right in their apartments. Being in a comfortable and familiar environment while undergoing nursing care enhances the healing process.
