Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides its occupants with 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses provide maintenance, personal care and other health related services for seniors who are unable to adequately take care of their needs.

This type of community is a convenient and easy care option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly admit persons 55 and greater (a rarity in the realm of senior care).As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, be free from restraints, participate in activities, and form or participate in resident groups. Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, emergency dental services, pharmaceutical services, and routine personal hygiene items to residents. A significant amount of occupants are bachelors or widows who have smaller social support groups, and about 50% of nursing home residents are over 85 years old.
