Skilled Nursing

FirstLight’s skilled nursing home care services meet a client’s need for care or treatment that can only be provided by licensed nurses.

Our in-home skilled nursing care is delivered by licensed nurses in the comfort of a client’s own home. This higher level of care may help with symptom management, reduce health risks such as infection, and avoid unnecessary physician visits, emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
