Frequently Asked Questions about Skilled Nursing:

Skilled nursing care is for individuals with medical needs requiring the skill of round-the-clock licensed nurses and therapists. Skilled nursing is appropriate for people recovering from illness, injury, surgery or stroke that need intensive therapy and care to gain optimal well-being and health.

Situations are as varied as individuals. Most often, candidates for long-term care have an ongoing health condition or permanent disability. They may suffer from chronic severe pain or the natural symptoms of advanced age that led to frailty and need for 24-hour medical supervision.

The Village Care Center is Medicare-certified. Generally, if a skilled service is needed and there has been a 3-day hospital stay in the last 30 days, Medicare will pay for up to 100 days of care needed to recuperate from stroke, surgery, injury or accident. However, Medicare payment rules are stringent, and once an individual no longer makes progress in recuperation, payment becomes the responsibility of the individual.
