Nursing Homes

This type of community is a familiar and comfortable care choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often admit individuals 55 and above infrequently heard of in senior care regarding care types.

A significant amount of occupants are single women with smaller social support groups, and about fifty percent of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper medical care, get information on services and fees, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, and make complaints. A significant portion of nursing home residents are individuals who have mental or physical disabilities, have incontinence issues, require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, or experience difficulty with hearing and seeing.
