What is Skilled Nursing?

A Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) or nursing home, offers many health and personal care services. When searching for the right place for recovery after a hospital stay due to surgery, injury, or illness, many choose skilled nursing at The Sequoias Health Center.

The Sequoias skilled nursing services offer long-term care and short-term rehabilitation in professional and nurturing environments. We serve individuals in need of rehabilitation so you can get back to living independently. Skilled nursing is offered 24/7 at The Sequoias Portola Valley.

What is a common reason for admission to skilled nursing?

Do you or a loved one need access to 24-hour skilled medical care? For the journey back to recovery and everyday life, people choose a skilled nursing center where professional caregivers help them recover following a hospital stay. After a hospitalization or experiencing other medical conditions such as knee surgery, heart attack, stroke, or hip replacement, skilled nursing aids in healing and recovery.

How long is a typical stay? For short-term skilled nursing residents needing temporary care, usually between 14 to 30 days following a hospital discharge. Others who require a longer-term stay or ongoing medical care may need a post-acute rehabilitation center, also available at The Sequoias.

When searching for a skilled nursing center, consider critical factors like clinical expertise, core values, overall atmosphere, and location.
