Skilled nursing care describes the unique, specialized, around-the-clock nursing care provided in what is commonly called a nursing home. At WRC Senior Services, skilled nursing care is offered at McKinley Health Center at Laurelbrooke Landing in Brookville.
If you have a loved one with a serious medical condition, such as a respiratory disease or heart failure, that is too difficult to care for at home or in personal care home, you might be considering skilled nursing care.
Skilled nursing care includes help with personal care, such as bathing, dressing and grooming, as well as medical treatment, assessment and monitoring by a professional nursing team. A RN will manage and coordinate your individualized care plan in collaboration with your doctor. Other services offered include physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapy; end of life care; 24 hour pharmacy services; laboratory blood draws; optometry care; podiatry care; dental care; and transportation to medical appointments.

- You have a surgical wound that needs cared for
- You need IV treatments
- You’ve had a stroke or heart attack
- You’ve had orthopedic surgery – i.e. knee or hip replacement, rotator cuff, broken bones
