Gulf Shores, Alabama

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that houses at least two individuals who have no familial ties to the administrator. This type of complex offers its occupants 24-hour care by registered nurses. These caregivers offer personal care, maintenance and other health related services for seniors who are unable to adequately take care of their needs because of the effects of aging.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and comfortable care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually take in persons 55 and greater which is for other senior care types. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to form or participate in resident groups, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, make complaints, and be free from restraints. Often times persons may decide to live in a nursing home due to a physical or mental impairment that prevents them from easily accomplishing their lifestyle goals. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal reading materials, flowers and plants, and specially prepared food. Types of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes can include home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), care coordination and case management, meal programs, and help with legal questions. A significant amount of inhabitants are single women who have less social support, and almost half of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85.
