Services from licensed nurses in your own home or in a nursing home.
Skilled care services are from technicians and therapists in your own home or in a nursing home.
♦ Skilled nursing care is specialized care and rehabilitation work. Help with physical therapy or intravenous injections that can only be given by a registered nurse or doctor.
• Most nursing home care is custodial care, like help with bathing or dressing. This would not fall under the term skilled nursing care.
