The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, encourages thorough vetting of skilled nursing facilities and nursing homes based on the needs, personality and desires of the patient.
DECATUR, GA, December ••, 2023: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Skilled Nursing Facility or Rehabilitation Facility: What To Look For When Your Loved One Needs Round The Clock Care.” Ms. Pawley provides a brief beginner’s guide to the selection of a long-term care facility.
According to Pawley, “Making the decision to place a loved one into a skilled nursing facility or nursing home is one of life’s most difficult decisions.” She emphasizes, “So many questions must be fully explored and answered satisfactorily before making the move.”
“For the sake of clarity,” writes Pawley, “I must point out that technically speaking, a rehabilitation facility is different than and serves different needs than a skilled nursing facility. However, the names are often used interchangeably.” She explains, “Typically, a rehabilitation facility means that the patient’s stay is temporary until their condition is improved, and they no longer need the level of care provided. This contrasts with a skilled nursing facility such as a nursing home which is more often a permanent residence.”
Pawley states, “Whether your loved one’s needs are temporary or long-term, you need to investigate any facility thoroughly. The best way to begin is to ask friends, family members, and people you know and trust in your community if they have recommendations.”
