Don’t feel sad, don’t feel guilty about leaving your family member here…it’s a necessary step in their recovery.
When people hear the words "Nursing Facility", many people still think of the old negative connotations associated with "Nursing Homes" and how they were decades ago. They think it means it's a permanent placement of a loved one — a place someone will spend the rest of their days. This is not at all the case with Skilled Nursing Facilities, which actually serve as a place for therapy.
Skilled Nursing Facilities focuses on patient recovery using advanced therapy techniques with the goal of keeping the stay as short as possible. This is a necessary step in recovery.
The plan for patients is not to have the facility become their home — it's to get them better, get them stronger, and get them back home and doing what they love.
