What is skilled care?

Skilled care is healthcare given or managed by a registered nurse (RN) or licensed vocational nurse (LVN).

At long term care facilities, trained professionals provide needed services due to an injury or illness, or because of a chronic disease or illness that cannot be managed at home.

Long term care facilities provide:

  • Pharmaceutical, laboratory and radiology services
  • Social and educational activities
  • Laundry services
  • Limited transportation
  • End-of-life or hospice care
  • Respite care
How is long term care paid for?

Coverage for skilled nursing care facilities varies. There are several options available for covering the cost of these services, and understanding them all can be overwhelming.
