Frequently Asked Questions
A skilled nursing facility within a senior living community provides 24-hour licensed nursing care. This area primarily provides long-term care or rehabilitative therapies for those who need medical or nursing care and is ideal for those with chronic medical conditions or disabilities, those in chronic pain, or those who require round-the-clock care and supervision by licensed skilled nursing professionals.
The skilled nursing area of a senior living community is not like a hospital. Many people utilize this area of care after a hospital stay. While this area of the community does provide advanced levels of on-going long-term care as well as short-term rehabilitation, the suites and spaces are designed to be warm and comfortable and reflect a home-like environment.
The best senior living value combines a package of services and amenities with access to health care and assisted living. At a LifeCare® community such as Friendship Village, residents pay for services and health care in an affordable monthly fee rather than on a more expensive a-la-carte basis.
Many communities, like Friendship Village, also offer a choice of financial plans that refund a percentage of the entrance payment to you or your estate, depending on your preference. Simply put, this type of community gives you more value for your dollar without sacrificing peace of mind.
When choosing a senior living community, it’s critical to find out who manages the community and to consider their reputation. Friendship Village is managed by Life Care Services®, an LCS® Company. Life Care Services® leads the way in senior living with nearly 50 years of proven experience. This innovative leadership brings passion and performance through strong financial stewardship and lifestyle-centered services, as well as high quality health services in communities as unique as the individuals who live in them.
