Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides residence to two or more seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its inhabitants around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers offer care for seniors who cannot care for themselves due to their aging.

Nursing homes are a helpful and comfy living option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will admit persons 55 and above which is unusual for other senior care types. A large number of occupants are single women who have circles of support, and about 50% of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal clothing, personal reading materials, and special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment. The most common mental disease experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, decision making capacities, and and their sense of familiarity. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, to manage your money, form or participate in resident groups, and participate in activities. Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, medically-related social services, nursing and related services, and dietary services to residents.
