Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a community that offers lodging to at least two persons who have no family relation to the administrator.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and comfy care choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually allow access to persons 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types.

Types of amenities and services provided at nursing homes can include patient and caregiver education, help with legal questions, home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), and help with shopping and transportation.
