Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides residence to two or more persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its residents 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer personal care, maintenance and other health related services for those who are unable to properly take care of their needs.

This type of community is a helpful and comfortable living alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will take in persons 55 and greater (a rarity in the world of senior care).The most common mental condition effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their and familiarity, memory function, and decision making abilities. A large number of residents tend to be bachelors or widows who have smaller social support groups, and almost half of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to participate in activities, exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, be free from abuse and neglect, and have your representative notified about your care. Many residents of nursing homes are individuals with , which can encompass verbal antagonism, resisting aid, or an urge to wander. Some services come at an extra cost which can include cosmetic and grooming items, personal reading materials, and flowers and plants.
