Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides room and board to at least two seniors who have no family ties to the administrator. This type of complex offers its residents 24-hour care by on-site nurses.

This type of community is a familiar and easy care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely admit persons 55 and greater (a rarity in the realm of senior care).A large portion of nursing home residents are persons who have incontinence issues, experience difficulty with hearing and seeing, have a physical or mental disability, or require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing. The most common mental condition effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory function, and their sense of familiarity, and decision making abilities. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include a private room, unless medically needed, personal comfort items, and special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment.
