Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that houses at least two seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its occupants with care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide specialized care for people who cannot care for their needs.

This type of community is a familiar and easy living option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly allow persons 55 and older (a rarity in the world of senior care).As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from discrimination, participate in activities, form or participate in resident groups, and be free from restraints. Some services come at an extra cost which can include specially prepared food, special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment, and a private room, unless medically needed. A significant amount of inhabitants tend to be single women with less social support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. A large number of nursing home residents are seniors who have a physical or mental disability, have incontinence issues, require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed, or experience difficulty with hearing and sight. Nursing homes are required to provide nursing and related services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), pharmaceutical services, and a professionallly directed program of activities to residents.
