Nursing Home

A Nursing Home is also known as a Skilled Nursing Facility or SNF. In the past, hey supplied 90% of all long-term care and only 10 % Acute care. In the the last few years-that ratio has changed. Today, approximately 60 % of beds are acute care rehabilitation and only 40% long term care. People with long-term, custodial care needs are having difficulty finding affordable options. Due to the shift to acute health care, nursing homes do more post-acute rehabilitation.

These articles explore the notion that nursing homes are bad places that no one would want to live in. The truth is nursing homes are a valuable part of the health care continuum and supply a great amount of care and service that no other place can do and at a relatively low cost. While many are quick to criticize nursing homes, they do provide a high level of care that other settings don’t. SNF’s are a great resource for individuals and family when needed.
