Information About Nursing Home in Puyallup
Nestled at the base of Mount Rainier, the city of Puyallup is just eight short miles east of Tacoma and only 35 miles south of Seattle. Having been settled by Oregon Trail pioneers as a farming community, the city has developed into an economic hub with over 36,000 residents.
Seniors living in a Puyallup nursing home are afforded the scenic beauty of Puyallup's signature daffodils and mountain views as well as the care and amenities provided by urban living.When selecting the right long-term care service for your family member or loved one, it is important to understand the difference between the types of care. A nursing home is a residential, skilled nursing facility, similar to a hospital, which provides intensive medical care for seniors dealing with severe health issues. A nursing home is different from an assisted living facility which provides assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing or housekeeping, but does not provide comprehensive medical services to residents.
