Complete guide to nursing homes

Essex, Connecticut

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers room and board to at least two persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for those who are unable to care for themselves.

This type of community is a familiar and comfortable care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will frequently allow individuals 55 and older infrequently heard of in senior care regarding care types. Often times persons might select to live in a nursing home over another type of community due to a physical or mental condition that makes it difficult for them to accomplish their standard of living. Types of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes can include friendly visitor programs, 24-hour emergency care, monitoring serious illness and unstable health status, and injections. Some services come at an extra cost which can include special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment, a private room, unless medically needed, and personal clothing. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from restraints, make complaints, be treated with respect, and get information on services and fees. Many residents are bachelors or widows with less social support, and almost half of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85.
