Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that houses two or more persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its residents with around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These caregivers provide personal care, maintenance and other health related services for those who are unable to adequately care for themselves.

Nursing homes are a familiar and comfy living alternative for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will frequently accept persons 55 and above seldom heard of in senior care regarding alternate care types. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have your representative notified about your care, be treated with respect, have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, and be free from restraints. A large portion of nursing home inhabitants are persons who require assistance with daily tasks such as walking, experience difficulty with hearing and sight, have incontinence issues, or have a physical or mental disability. Examples of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes can include rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance), care coordination and case management, and injections. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral difficulties. These can consist of resisting assistance, a tendency to wander, or verbal outbursts. The most frequent mental disease experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, and familiarity, and decision making capabilities.
