As people in Atlanta age, they may face limitations in their abilities to function independently to the extent that a higher level of medical care is required. Independent Living and Assisted Living may not meet the host of physical and medical needs of a senior, thus a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) in Atlanta becomes the appropriate option.
For some, a transfer to an Atlanta Skilled Nursing Facility from a hospital stay occurs due to recuperative needs or for rehabilitation services such as occupational or physical therapy. Once the therapeutic goals are met, the person is typically sent home or to an Assisted Living Community. For others, their personal care and medical needs are long term and chronic and the services provided by a Skilled Nursing Facility best meet those needs over an extended period.
