There are different types of senior living communities.  Those providing nursing services are addressed to people who are recovering from injuries or accidents, as well as to those suffering from serious health issues.

Although you may not like to think about it, skilled nursing may become the answer for your elderly parent.

Skilled nursing services are provided by licensed nurses, trained to offer rehabilitation and complex wound dressings.  Residents in these facilities received 24-hours care. Skilled nursing facilities keep track of medication schedules, provide proper nutrition which is essential at every age and absolutely critical during recovery, as well as in-house physical therapy and activity.

Besides medical services, a full service skilled nursing facility in Denver also offers social and spiritual support.   Residents in these facilities are temporarily or permanently unable to do most of the things they used to, so there are not so many reasons to enjoy their lives.  To avoid the feeling of isolation and depression that may stall patients on the road to recovery, skilled nursing facilities help them stay in high spirits, through different activities.

Seeing your parent in a skilled nursing facility may be hard, but you will learn to adjust and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your loved one is safe, comfortable and permanently monitored.
