5 Things to Look For in a Skilled Nursing Facility

A skilled nursing facility provides post-acute care to allow a patient to heal after an unexpected hospital stay or during treatment for a condition. A comfortable setting with a compassionate team like Santé is ideal for patients who no longer need inpatient care, but aren’t ready to go home. Getting involved with the coordination of your loved one’s care is essential to allowing things to run smoothly. Here are five things to look for in a skilled nursing facility.


1. An Uplifting, Healing Environment


It’s important that you familiarize yourself with the skilled nursing facility where your loved one will be staying. Our short-term inpatient transitional rehabilitation facilities have been designed to feel like home. The personal suites at many of our facilities have all the amenities necessary for a restful recuperation. They even have enough room for family members to stay overnight.


2. A Continuum of Care


A variety of health services offered at a skilled nursing facility will ensure your loved one receives a compassionate continuum of care throughout their recovery by healing their mind, body, and soul. Our specialized programs offer intensive and personalized post-acute and short-term rehabilitation specifically designed to help guests reach the best level of function for the transition to home. 


3. Home Health Care Services


Many skilled nursing facilities offer a variety of services to patients in the comfort of their home, which is important to ensuring your loved one feels comfortable and calm during their treatment journey. Our home health care services include different types of nursing, physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Patients can also receive in-home care from social workers and home health aides.


4. Compassionate Care Team


When choosing a skilled nursing facility, you want to know that your loved one will feel comfortable and cared for during their rehabilitation. It doesn’t hurt to ask the facility if you can meet the people who will be caring for your loved one. At Santé, we are passionate about service, beginning with our care managers who will guide the journey and focus on treating others as we would like to be treated.


5. Convenient Location


Having your loved one close by as they undergo treatment and rehabilitation is important for many of our patient’s families. With five care facilities in Arizona, you’ll find comfort in knowing that there’s a Santé Rehabilitation Center near you.
