In brief: Levels of care
The highest level of care is delivered in the hospitals.
Out of the hospital the highest level of care is in a skilled nursing facility that can give complete custoidial care including total patient assistance with daily living, giving medications and intravenous therapy, and all necessary care. The next level of care are assisted living homes that can help people who need less nursing care.
