A nursing home offers room and board to at least two individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of complex provides its residents with care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for people who are unable to take care of their needs.

This type of facility is a convenient and easy care choice for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often allow access to individuals 55 and above which is unusual for other senior care types.Often times seniors might prefer life in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a physical or mental condition that makes it difficult for them to accomplish their standard of living. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, have your representative notified about your care, participate in activities, and be free from abuse and neglect. The most frequent mental issue experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their decision making abilities, memory function, and and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings.
