Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides room and board to two or more individuals who have no familial ties to the administrator. This type of establishment offers its residents around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These nurses provide healthcare services for those who cannot properly care for their needs because of the effects of aging.

This type of community is a helpful and easy living alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will allow persons 55 and older which is uncommon for other senior care types. Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, routine personal hygiene items, medically-related social services, and nursing and related services to residents. The most common mental disease effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, decision making capabilities, and and familiarity with their surroundings. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to participate in activities, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, have your representative notified about your care, and spend time with visitors.
