Skilled nursing services can often be confused with what assisted living communities offer, but a comparison of the two environments highlights the differences. Nursing homes rely heavily on the skilled expertise of licensed nurses to carry out the treatment orders from each resident’s physician. In contrast, assisted living communities, such as our sister facility, Riverbend Senior Living, provide assistance with daily living activities. Nursing homes are needed when one’s health has declined to the point where skilled nursing oversight is needed during the day and night.
