When you need it. How you get it. What it involves.
A stay in Skilled Nursing often comes after a stay in the hospital for our aging parents. It can bring a lot of confusion with it. How you get it, where you go, who is eligible and more.
Jamie Smithson has worked in the senior care industry for more than ten years and knows all of the ins and outs of skilled nursing, rehab, assisted living and more. She says falls, strokes and heart problems are the most common reasons our aging parents find themselves in skilled nursing.
She talks with Kim and Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents about selecting a skilled nursing facility and how to work with the staff so our parents have the best possible outcome.
