Nursing homes provide personal assistance and medical care from licensed professionals. Services in skilled nursing facilities often include:
A nursing home is a complex that houses two or more seniors who have no familial relation to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its residents around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for seniors who cannot adequately care for themselves due to their aging.
Nursing homes can be a convenient and comfortable care alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often allow persons 55 and above which is unusual for other senior care types. Many occupants of nursing homes are individuals with behavioral problems. These can span verbal fits, resisting assistance, or experiencing a desire to wander. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal clothing, flowers and plants, and specially prepared food. 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 exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen. Nursing homes are required to provide dietary services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), pharmaceutical services, and a professionallly directed program of activities to residents. A large number of residents tend to be bachelors or widows with less social support, and about 50% of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old.
