Skilled nursing homes are medical facilities that are allowed to provide services that cannot be dispensed in Assisted Living or Board and Care homes. Typically these services involve managing complex and potentially serious medical problems such as infections, wound care, IV therapy, and coma care. They offer both short and long term care options for those with serious problems and disabilities who are bedridden or need 24 hour nursing care.
So who needs a nursing home? Only those individuals that have serious disabilities to the extent that the services that they need cannot be found through home care, residential care or assisted living facilities. Unfortunately, economics rather than the availability of services often dictate the choice. If a senior requires extensive assistance and has very limited income (perhaps only Social Security) he may have to be placed in a nursing home with the cost paid for by the state under the Medi-Cal program (California’s Medicaid program for those with no financial resources of their own). Medi-Cal does not cover fees for Board and Care or Assisted Living Facilities.
