It’s one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.

Those who decide upon Brunswick Cove  have several advantages. Our residence creates a life that is peaceful and relaxing while still offering stimulating activities.

Looking for a skilled nursing home near you? We’d like to share with you the top reasons why Brunswick Cove is a great choice for skilled nursing care.

What Is Skilled Nursing?

Skilled nursing is caring for those who need medical treatment from licensed nurses or health care workers.

A skilled nursing community or skilled nursing facility (SNF) is an inpatient treatment community where residents receive care for chronic and acute diseases. An experienced health care team provides services around the clock, and daily activities keep residents engaged in a stimulating environment.

In addition, skilled nursing involves helping residents with the activities of daily living such as bathing or dressing.

SNF communities also feature skilled nursing rehab services, where those who have had hip or knee replacements can learn to walk again. We also serve those who have been discharged from the hospital but are not yet well enough to return home or to their assisted living facility.

The Top Reasons for Selecting Brunswick Cove for Skilled Nursing Care

1. We Are the Regional Leader in Wound Care Services

We have been recognized among nursing communities for our outstanding wound care services.

For those with diabetes and other chronic health conditions, non-healing wounds can present a serious health risk, placing them at risk for infection, amputation and other complications.

Wounds may not heal for several reasons, including:

  • Circulation problems
  • Edema
  • Poor nutrition
  • Repeated trauma to the area

Having a dependable, professional, specialized staff makes all the difference and can transform your prognosis.

2. We Have a Compounding Pharmacy

We don’t believe it’s enough to merely offer excellent pharmacy services. We take this a step further by offering compounding.

A compounding pharmacy is able to mix or alter ingredients in order to craft a medication. This is done to better meet the needs of our residents.

For example, if you have difficulty swallowing, our compounding pharmacy can provide the medicine in a liquid form.

Compounding also means convenience—and it can even prevent allergic reactions to certain dyes.

3. We Offer TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition)

TPN is intravenous (IV) nutrition feeding. This helps our residents who have disorders that affect their digestive system. Through a central line (sometimes referred to as a PICC line), residents have nutrients delivered to their bodies.

We have health care workers who have received extensive training in administering TPN because we believe your loved one deserves the most comprehensive, compassionate care available.

4. We Have Access to a Surgical Cancer Team

Many of our residents are cancer survivors and others are waging a battle with the disease. Our access to the best physicians and health care workers makes the difference.

When it comes to your loved one, you want the support of an entire team behind them. We’re proud to have it at Brunswick Cove

5. We Offer Access to All Aspects of Hospice

This includes both short-term and long term hospice care.

Hospice services are conducted here with the oversight of the Hospice agency staff. Palliative services are also offered and overseen by our medical director.

Hospice care is for those who have a life-limiting illness. It seeks to provide comfort, pain management and spiritual support. If you have any questions about this service, we’ll be glad to talk to you.

6. We’re in a perfect location!

Brunswick County boasts not just one, but six scenic island beaches: Sunset Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, Holden Beach, Oak Island, Caswell Beach and Bald Head Island. Each one has its own unique, welcoming atmosphere.

We’re also close to new neighborhoods such as Mallory Creek, Westport, Brunswick Forest and Waterford.

7. We have a contract with the VA

Veterans have a special place in our hearts, and we’re honored to be able to help and serve those who served our country. Because we have a contract with the VA, we can uniquely suit the needs of our veterans. This means they can stay near their loved ones while receiving the highest level of dignity and respect.
