Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers lodging to at least two seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its occupants with 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses provide care for people who are unable to take care of themselves.

Nursing homes are a helpful and easy care choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will usually take in persons 55 and above which is for other senior care types. Nursing homes are required to provide medically-related social services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), pharmaceutical services, and routine personal hygiene items to residents. Examples of care services and amenities offered at nursing homes might include monitoring of medication, wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) , and injections. A large number of occupants are bachelors or widows who have less social support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over 85 years old. A significant portion of nursing home inhabitants are individuals who require assistance with daily tasks such as walking, experience difficulty with hearing and sight, have incontinence issues, or have mental or physical disabilities. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, be treated with respect, have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, and be free from restraints.
