Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers lodging to two or more persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its occupants 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer healthcare services for people who cannot adequately take care of themselves because of mental or physical conditions, including age.

Nursing homes are a convenient and comfy living choice for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will accept individuals 55 and older (a rarity in the realm of senior care).As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have your representative notified about your care, have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, and to manage your money. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, a private room, unless medically needed, and personal reading materials. Often times individuals may decide life in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a physical or mental disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living.
