Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides lodging to at least two seniors who have no family ties to the administrator. This type of residence offers its occupants around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for people who are unable to care for their needs because of mental or physical conditions.

This type of community is a convenient and comfortable care alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely allow persons 55 and greater (a rarity in the world of senior care).Many occupants of nursing homes are persons with behavioral difficulties, which can consist of a tendency to wander, verbal outbursts, or resisting care. A large number of residents tend to be single women who have circles of support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. Nursing homes are required to provide medically-related social services, room and bed maintenance services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), and emergency dental services to residents. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, make complaints, to manage your money, and form or participate in resident groups. Examples of amenities and services provided at nursing homes might include patient and caregiver education, monitoring serious illness and unstable health status, senior centers, and room and board.
