For times when 24-hour nursing care is necessary, Episcopal SeniorLife Communities offers skilled care at the Episcopal Church Home. Skilled nursing is for seniors 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 offer both traditional and memory care-specific skilled nursing homes.
The care provided within Episcopal SeniorLife Communities’ skilled nursing homes is extensive and personalized for each resident. Staff help residents with their activities of daily living—from bathing and dressing to eating and other daily activities—and licensed medical professionals administer medications, IVs, injections, wound care, tube feedings and other tasks. At Episcopal SeniorLife Communities, our skilled care services also include a full menu of daily activities that senior residents can take advantage of, based on their interests and ability 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 leaves the hospital, and means a temporary stay before returning home or to another care setting, such as a nursing home. In other cases, especially when someone is elderly and in a fragile medical condition, skilled nursing is required in order to maintain good overall care for that person over the long term.
While skilled care 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.
