Why a Skilled Nursing Facility Could be the Right Choice for Your Loved One

As a loved one ages or when he or she requires care for another reason, you have several options to consider. You could take on the feat by yourself or team up with other family members. However, becoming a caretaker is a big commitment that requires a lot of sacrifice. You could also hire a professional home health caregiver to at least give you a break at times or to act as the primary caregiver. There is also the option of a skilled nursing facility like Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation, which offers 38 locations across North and South Carolina. We’d like to help you decide if skilled nursing care is the right option for your loved one by explaining the benefits.  


24-Hour Continuous Care

Depending on your other responsibilities, you may not be able to give your loved one round-the-clock care, which could lead to times when your loved one is alone. It could also mean sacrificing vacations or your own personal hobbies to provide care. 

However, at one of our Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation facilities, your loved one receives 24-hour care from our dedicated and compassionate team of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants. We monitor their health conditions and provide your loved one with quality meals, assistance with daily living tasks, opportunities for them to receive physical, occupational and speech therapy and various other services that address your loved one’s physical and mental needs. 


Expert Care for Acute and Chronic Illnesses and Conditions 

While you may be able to take care of your loved one, we provide one thing most caregivers can’t — expert skilled nursing care. From IV Therapy to wound care to diabetes management, our nursing staff follows an individualized treatment plan to support your loved one’s unique medical needs to promote healing and improved quality of life. 

If your loved one needs to recover after a major surgery or illness, we can provide rehabilitation on a temporary or long-term basis as well.  


Gives You Peace of Mind Without Taking a Physical or Mental Toll on You 

You probably feel obligated to ensure your loved one receives the care they need and deserve, which is normal. However, when you have other obligations and try to juggle caring for your loved one on top of those, it can lead to you becoming burnt out, both mentally and physically.

When you opt for a skilled nursing facility to care for your loved one, you can still visit them but you won’t solely be responsible for them. Therefore, you can enjoy that time with them without feeling mental and physical exhaustion.


Assists in Combating Loneliness

In a skilled nursing facility, you never have to worry about your loved one feeling alone because they can interact with our staff and other residents at any time. Engaging activities, themed parties and other special events happen daily. 

Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation is specifically geared to address your loved one’s emotional and physical needs. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a free consultation, reach out to us at 800-999-9883 or fill out a form online.
