Skilled Nursing Homes

A nursing home (sometimes called a skilled nursing facility, or SNF) is a residence that provides the following services to people of all ages who need this level of living assistance: 24-hour supervision, medi­cal care, room and board and meals.

Stays can be short-term for those recov­ering from illness or surgery, or long-term for individuals who can no longer live independently. In either case, a licensed staff provides comprehensive nursing care, including medication administration, dietary requirements and all treatment regimens.

Additionally, all residents are under the care of an on-call physician. Most nursing homes also offer a creative variety of social activities tailored to their residents.

Check the status of a nursing home’s license or current listing by contacting the Pennsylvania Department of Health at or (877) PA-HEALTH.

Medicaid pays the cost of nursing home care for people with limited incomes. Long-term care insurance, Medicare and private pay are ways in which to pay for care, and individuals should assess their financial situation before deciding on nursing home care.

Please consider that the process of locating a residence and filling out the necessary paperwork takes time, and many facilities have waiting lists. Whenever possible, give yourself ample time to plan in advance.

All nursing homes are state licensed and regulated, and the federal government regulates nursing homes that receive federal funds. Surveys can be found online at
