For times when 24-hour nursing care is necessary, Episcopal SeniorLife Communities offers this level of care at the Episcopal Church Home. Skilled Nursing is for people who have serious or chronic health issues that require consistent medical oversight or complete assistance with the activities of daily living. At the Episcopal Church Home, we have traditional and Memory Care-specific Skilled Nursing neighborhoods.
The care provided within this living option is extensive and personalized for each resident. Staff help residents with their activities of daily living—from bathing and dressing to eating and toileting and other activities—and licensed medical professionals administer medications, IVs, injections, wound care, tube feedings and other tasks. At Episcopal SeniorLife Communities, our Skilled Nursing services also include a full menu of daily activities that residents can take advantage of, based on their interests and abilities to participate.

An accident, surgery, a serious and debilitating illness or a chronic condition may call for Skilled Nursing care. In some cases, Skilled Nursing is the next step after you or a loved one leave the hospital, and means a temporary stay before going home or to another care setting. In other cases, especially when someone is elderly and in fragile medical condition, Skilled Nursing is required in order to maintain good overall care for that person over the long term.
While Skilled Nursing can be provided in a number of settings, it’s always a high level of medical care that must be administered by trained medical professionals, including doctors and registered nurses (RNs), and physical, speech and occupational therapists.
