If you or a loved one is in need of care and assistance, assisted living facilities are available to meet these needs. These facilities will coordinate medical visits and provide 24-hour nursing care. Licensed RNs and LVNs will be on-site at all times. They can prepare customized meals for special dietary needs, and will also coordinate a physician’s visit if necessary. The nursing homes also provide activities and transportation for residents. There is a contract between the nursing home and the resident that details the services provided.
