There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal clothing, cosmetic and grooming items, and specially prepared food. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from abuse and neglect, have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, be free from discrimination, and participate in activities.
