Columbus, Georgia

Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers residence to two or more individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of community offers its inhabitants 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for seniors who are unable to care for themselves because of the effects of aging.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfortable care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often take in persons 55 and older seldom heard of in senior care regarding different care types.

Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal reading materials, specially prepared food, and personal comfort items. Many occupants tend to be bachelors or widows with circles of support, and almost half of nursing home residents are over the age of 85.
