Many seniors go through the golden years independently, with little to no significant health care issues or needs.

Call 512.580.9882 to learn more about our long-term skilled nursing care in Texas and decide if it is right for you.

What Is Long-Term Skilled Nursing Care?

Skilled nursing care is the highest level of nursing provided outside a hospital setting. Short-term skilled nursing care is typically necessary after an illness or injury that is likely to improve. Long-term skilled nursing care is ideal for seniors with complex, chronic, or progressive medical conditions that make independent living challenging or impossible.

Long-term skilled nursing care is ideal for seniors who have:

  • Dementia, including Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disorders
  • Chronic health issues that limit mobility and the ability to live independently
  • Neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease

Choosing long-term skilled nursing care does not mean giving up your independence. It means that you are accepting a new way of life that will give you the support you need to enjoy the things you want to do, have new experiences, and live your life to the fullest.

Is Long-Term Skilled Nursing Care for Me?

With increased life expectancy, seniors live independently much longer than ever before. However, dementia, injuries, and progressive or chronic diseases impact millions of seniors, often resulting in the need for long-term care, and knowing when and if you need a higher level of care can be challenging.

Signs that long-term skilled nursing care might be right for you include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Injury or illness that creates mobility problems
  • Chronic or worsening health problems
  • Difficulty managing activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Inability to drive
  • Inability to manage medications
  • Wandering or getting lost in familiar places
  • Multiple falls or hospital stays
  • Lack of a strong support network

Many seniors struggle to acknowledge or accept the need for long-term care. They may downplay their need for assistance or try to cover up their problems.

The Benefits of Long-Term Skilled Nursing Care

The main benefit of long-term skilled nursing care is that you have around-the-clock access to scheduled care and immediate access to emergency care.

Other significant benefits include:

  • Lowered risk of hospitalization
  • Guidance on diet and nutrition
  • Social engagement and support.
  • Individualized treatment plans and therapeutic interventions
  • Structured routines that promote stability
  • Life-enriching events and activities
  • Transportation services

In long-term skilled nursing care at Buckner Villas, the staff does more than provide medical care. We strive to build relationships with residents and their family members. Treatment is custom to each resident’s unique needs and circumstances.
