Downey, California

Nursing Homes

Many occupants of nursing homes are individuals with behavioral problems, which can consist of verbal outbursts, a tendency to wander, or resisting care. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal reading materials, specially prepared food, and cosmetic and grooming items. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from abuse and neglect, be treated with respect, spend time with visitors, and get proper medical care.
