There has been confusion over what's supposed to happen after my loved one is discharged. Everyone is interested in her well being. My loved one is left alone in her room a lot of the time, and she really needs to have more social interaction.
I haven't had issues, and I feel like they take the time to reach out to me. The social worker has been helpful and communicative. She has set up meetings to discuss further placement for him.

Compared to other senior care types, nursing homes, or skilled nursing facilities, are typically more expensive due to the 24/7 skilled nursing and medical care services available on site. Las Vegas nursing homes have a median monthly cost of $8,273 for semi-private rooms and $10,646 for private rooms. And, compared to the national median monthly cost at $7,908 for semi-private rooms and $9,034 for private rooms, nursing homes in Las Vegas are more expensive than they are in other places. If a senior does not need 24/7 medical care, they may want to consider a cheaper option at an assisted living or, for those with dementia care needs, a memory care community.
Like nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities, the monthly prices for assisted living and memory care facilities can include room and board, amenities, and personal care services. Prices will always vary depending on location, specific amenities, and floor plan.

Seniors in Las Vegas, Nevada, typically use both private and public pay options to cover the costs of long-term senior care.
Skilled nursing or nursing home care in Las Vegas may be covered by some state and federal programs if a senior meets medical and financial requirements. If assisted living or memory care is the more appropriate option for your loved one, that can involve different payment options. Browse our guide to private and public pay options, as well as how veterans benefits may help cover long-term senior care expenses.
There are a variety of strategies families use to finance nursing homes or other long-term care costs for an aging loved one. Depending on your family’s financial situation, proceeds from the options listed below can help to cover senior care costs.
If your loved one has long-term care insurance, note that long-term care policies vary. In Nevada, long-term care insurance policies have exclusion sections. For example, some policies exclude the coverage of war-inflicted illnesses and drug addictions. Seniors should check with their long-term care policy providers to learn what their policy covers.
Nursing homes, or skilled nursing facilities, as well as assisted living facilities in Nevada must be licensed by the state’s Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (HCQC). Nursing facilities in Nevada must abide by the following to remain licensed by the state:[09,11]
Nevada’s Bureau of Health Care Quality may require an inspection of a skilled nursing facility prior to the renewal of their license for another year to oversee compliance with these laws and regulations.
Assisted living laws and regulations
Because nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities aren’t the right option for every senior, we’ve also included an outline of Nevada’s assisted living and memory care laws and regulations. Nevada’s local Division of Health licenses Nevada’s assisted living facilities under the category of “residential facilities for groups.” In order to be licensed as an assisted living facility in Nevada, facilities must meet the following standards: 
With the exception of seniors currently on hospice who have an exemption from the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (HCQC), assisted living facilities in Nevada aren’t permitted to house seniors that require skilled nursing care, 24-hour care, or physical restraints. In addition, these facilities must foster each resident’s right to exercise independence when making major life decisions. 
Memory care laws and regulations
Residential assisted living facilities must have an endorsement from the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (HCQC) in the local Division of Health in order to provide memory care. Memory care facilities must meet the assisted living laws and regulations above, as well as some additional memory-care-specific licensing requirements. To function as a memory care facility in Nevada, the following additional facility guidelines must be met: [07,12]
To monitor each facility’s compliance with Nevada’s regulations, the Division of Health conducts frequent inspections. Inspections are typically conducted upon gaining a license and when there’s a complaint about the facility. The building, policies, and the staff’s qualifications are all examined during these inspections. 
Nevada’s inspections and licensing reports for nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities, as well as assisted living and memory care facilities are available to the public via the Licensee Search. To navigate this search form, select “Health Facilities” under the Business Unit search criteria, select “Residential Facility for Groups” under the Credential Type criteria, and then enter the name and the address of the facility you would like to look up.

Number of in-network assisted living and memory care facilities in Las Vegas, Nevada
The senior population is growing in Las Vegas due to the affordability of senior living and the number of senior veterans moving to the area. This trend has created a demand for more types of senior living facilities in Las Vegas. Meaning, Las Vegas has options. Senior living communities in Las Vegas offer anywhere from high-end, luxe amenities to low-income yet comfortable accommodations.
Las Vegas nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities specialize in long-term care for chronic medical conditions, short-term rehabilitation after a surgery or illness, and hospice care. Services in skilled nursing facilities in Las Vegas typically include personalized medical care, medication management, meal service, pharmacy delivery service, housekeeping, and transportation. Seniors in nursing homes or skilled nursing units will often have access to amenities, such as courtyards, common areas, and social activities.
Assisted living in Las Vegas boasts a supportive long-term experience to suit a range of senior lifestyles. From general support to memory care or skilled nursing care, seniors can find a care type under an assisted living banner that fits their immediate and future needs. While some communities only offer basic care services on site, many senior living communities today offer tiered care types all on one campus — like independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing care. The resident can move to another care type area in the community depending on their evolving needs. These types of communities typically refer to themselves as “aging-in-place” assisted living communities, meaning the senior won’t have to move if their care needs ever change.
For seniors with memory care needs, the majority of our Las Vegas network’s assisted living facilities also have on-campus memory care services. Easy-to-navigate floor plans, pet-friendly accommodations, and progressive cognitive therapies await seniors in need of professional dementia care. These communities staff caregivers with advanced memory care training, so every resident is supported according to their specialized, individual needs. Many Las Vegas memory care communities also offer high-end amenities, such as outdoor restaurant-style dining experiences, personal event planning, and beauty salons.
