Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that provides lodging to at least two persons who have no family ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its occupants with around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses provide care for seniors who are unable to adequately take care of their needs.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and comfortable living alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often accept persons 55 and greater (a rarity in theworldof senior care).The most common mental condition experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capabilities, memory function, and and familiarity with their surroundings. Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), pharmaceutical services, and medically-related social services to residents. Some services come at an extra cost which can include specially prepared food, a private room, unless medically needed, and personal clothing. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have your representative notified about your care, spend time with visitors, participate in activities, and form or participate in resident groups. Types of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes might include injections, adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) , monitoring of medication, and 24-hour emergency care.
