Opelika, Alabama

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers lodging to at least two seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of residence provides its occupants with care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers offer health related services for those who are unable to adequately care for themselves because of mental or physical conditions, including age.

This type of community is a convenient and easy living alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely take in persons 55 and above infrequently heard of in senior care regarding other care types. Some services come at an extra cost which can include special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment, flowers and plants, and a private room, unless medically needed. Many occupants of nursing homes are persons with behavioral difficulties. These can consist of a tendency to wander, verbal outbursts, or resisting assistance. Often times individuals might choose to live in a nursing home due to a mental or physical impairment that prevents them from easily accomplishing the activities of daily living. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to spend time with visitors, be treated with respect, be free from abuse and neglect, and have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge. Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, nursing and related services, dietary services, and a professionallly directed program of activities to residents.
