Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that houses two or more seniors who have no personal ties to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its occupants around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for seniors who cannot care for themselves due to mental or physical conditions.

This type of community is a helpful and comfortable living alternative for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will frequently allow access to individuals 55 and older (a rarity in the world of senior care).Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal clothing, personal comfort items, and flowers and plants. Nursing homes are required to provide medically-related social services, room and bed maintenance services, pharmaceutical services, and dietary services to residents. Types of care services and amenities offered at nursing homes might include wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, help with shopping and transportation, rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, and injections. Many residents of nursing homes are humans with , which can span verbal antagonism, resisting support, or an inclination to wander. The most frequent mental condition effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their and their sense of familiarity, decision making abilities, and memory recall.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

Proximity to medical communities might be an important consideration in determining the right retirement home. In total, there are 7 hospitals located in Bakersfield which offer emergency services and other healthcare. The top hospitals in Bakersfield include Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, and Adventist Health Bakersfield.

Cost of Living

The location where a community is located will have a large influence on the cost of care.
