Determine What Care Your Loved One Needs
Today’s skilled nursing facilities are a vast improvement from the nursing homes of public perception. The primary focus of a skilled nursing facility is to help people recover and rehabilitate so they can return to their normal life as quickly as possible. The average length of stay in these programs at Brookdale is under 30 days; seventy-one percent of people go home or to lower levels of care.
