Nursing Homes

A nursing home is an establishment that provides residence to two or more persons who have no personal relation to the administrator. This type of residence provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers provide maintenance, personal care and other health related services for people who cannot adequately take care of themselves.

This type of community is a familiar and comfortable care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often allow persons 55 and greater which is unusual for other senior care types. Types of amenities and services offered at nursing homes can include room and board, 24-hour emergency care, friendly visitor programs, and home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities). Many residents of nursing homes are seniors with , which can of verbal outbursts, resisting support, or a propensity to wander. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to spend time with visitors, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, make complaints, and be treated with respect. Some services come at an extra cost which can include flowers and plants, a private room, unless medically needed, and personal clothing. The most frequent mental disease experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their and familiarity, memory recall, and decision making capabilities.

Cost of Living

The location in which a care community is located will have a large effect on the overall price. The total cost of living is a major factor when determining which community is best for your family.
