Nursing Home Vs Hospice
Trying to decide whether a skilled nursing facility will be best for mom or dad? It’s important to first determine the kind of support and care that your parent requires. There are many different types of retirement living communities. Understanding their services will help you make the right decision.
Many people are confused about the services nursing homes provide and often equate them with a hospice. The two are quite different. A hospice is a type of facility where health professionals and volunteers care for individuals who are terminally ill. While skilled nursing facilities serve individuals with debilitating and degenerative conditions, they do not usually provide end-of-life care.
Selecting an appropriate retirement living facility is key to making sure your loved ones are comfortable, adjust to their new home quickly and have the support they require.
