Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a community that houses two or more individuals who have no familial ties to the administrator. This type of complex provides its residents with care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer healthcare services for those who cannot care for their own needs.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfortable living choice for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will usually take in persons 55 and greater (a rarity in the world of senior care).Often times individuals might decide to live in a nursing home over another type of community due to a physical or mental disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing their lifestyle goals. The most common mental disease effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their decision making abilities, memory recall, and and familiarity.
