Nursing Homes / Skilled Nursing Facilities

Nursing homes may provide a full range of care needs, including acute care and long-term care. Acute care rehabilitation is short-term care offered for people with injuries, illnesses or post-operative care needs who will eventually be able to recover outside a hospital. Long-term care is provided to individuals who require longer stays. Medicare may pay for some nursing home care, but only if you meet certain qualifications and conditions.

Selecting the right care can be difficult. These topic sheets have important information to help you make an informed decision:
