DeKalb, Illinois

Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers lodging to two or more individuals who have no family relation to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care by registered nurses. These caregivers offer healthcare services for those who cannot take care of their own needs because of their aging.

This type of facility is a familiar and easy care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually take in persons 55 and older (a rarity in theworldof senior care).Many residents of nursing homes may have behavioral problems. These can consist of a tendency to wander, verbal outbursts, or resisting assistance. A significant portion of nursing home residents are individuals who have incontinence issues, experience difficulty with hearing and seeing, have a physical or mental disability, or require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed. Some services come at an extra cost which can include special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, flowers and plants, and a private room, unless medically needed.
