Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that provides residence to two or more individuals who have no personal ties to the administrator. This type of residence offers its residents 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses.

This type of facility is a convenient and easy living choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually admit persons 55 and older (a rarity in theworldof senior care).There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal reading materials, special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, and flowers and plants.

Nursing homes are required to provide specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), dietary services, emergency dental services, and nursing and related services to residents.
