Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that houses two or more individuals who have no personal ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with care administered by registered nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for seniors who cannot adequately care for their own needs.

This type of facility is a helpful and easy living alternative for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will admit persons 55 and above (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Some services come at an extra cost which can include cosmetic and grooming items, specially prepared food, and personal clothing. Often times persons may select to live in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a mental or physical disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing their lifestyle goals. Examples of care services and amenitiesoffered at nursing homes can include social and recreational activities, bill pay, intravenous or nutrition therapy, and senior centers.
