Skilled Nursing Facilities
A skilled nursing facility, such as The Palazzo, in Phoenix, AZ, provides the care for senior adults at properties designed specifically for long term care. This type of care is known as custodial care that includes daily help with dressing, bathing, feeding and getting in and out of bed. This type of facility gives high level medical care, which is different than senior housing facilities that offer independent living services. Skilled nursing facilities provide care that includes licensed medical professionals including a physician, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, occupational therapists, and physical therapists. This staff delivers care, medical procedures and therapies not provided for at senior living facilities offering only independent living.
