When is the Appropriate Time to Move from Home Care to Skilled Nursing Facility?

Transitioning to a Long-term Care Facility 
We understand that deciding to transition your loved one to a skilled nursing facility, such as those within YAD Healthcare, can be an emotionally challenging decision.

Although change is inherently tricky, we want to reassure you that this transition often results in improved care for your loved one and long-term peace of mind for the caregiver. 

Overcoming Stigma 
Skilled nursing facilities sometimes carry a negative stigma, associated with a perception of depressing environments. However, at YAD Healthcare, we make deliberate efforts to foster vibrant communities. Residents can access diverse activities designed to enhance physical and mental well-being, fostering new friendships and providing a sense of purpose. Nutritious and varied meals are provided, and our nursing professionals ensure that the basic needs of your loved one, regardless of their level of assistance, are met. 

Monitoring Progress 
Caretakers need to consider their well-being alongside that of their loved one. Signs such as self-injury during caregiving, the need for additional in-home help, signs of caregiver burnout (quick temper, high blood pressure, headaches, gastrointestinal issues, depression), and expressions of concern from family and friends are indicators that a transition to a skilled nursing facility may be beneficial. 

Research and Open-Mindedness 
Now is the opportune time to research facilities in your area and schedule tours. At YAD Healthcare, our staff is available to facilitate tours and assist you in every conceivable way to ensure you feel comfortable with the information you receive. 

Feeling guilty about not being able to provide ongoing care is a common sentiment, but it often subsides when individuals recognize the compassionate care their loved ones can access in a skilled nursing facility. 

Our professionals specialize in making this transition as comfortable as possible for the entire family. Contact us to schedule a tour of one of our YAD Healthcare facilities.
