Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides room and board to at least two persons who have no familial relation to the administrator.

Many residents are single women who have circles of support, and about fifty percent of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85. Types of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes can include care coordination and case management, help with legal questions, home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), and senior centers. The most frequent mental issue effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their and their sense of familiarity, decision making capacities, and memory function.
