Complete guide to nursing homes

Shelton, Connecticut

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that offers housing to at least two individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its inhabitants with around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These caregivers provide specialized care for people who cannot take care of their own needs.

This type of community is a familiar and easy care choice for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly accept individuals 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types. A significant number of nursing home inhabitants are individuals who have mental or physical disabilities, have incontinence issues, experience difficulty with vision and hearing, or require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed. Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, a professionallly directed program of activities, medically-related social services, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. Some services come at an extra cost which can include cosmetic and grooming items, a private room, unless medically needed, and specially prepared food. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from abuse and neglect, be free from discrimination, be treated with respect, and be free from restraints. The most common mental condition experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capabilities, and familiarity with their surroundings, and memory function.
