Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a community that provides housing to two or more persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of complex provides its inhabitants with around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide maintenance, personal care and other health related services for those who are unable to adequately take care of their needs.

This type of community is a familiar and easy care alternative for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often accept individuals 55 and above which is uncommon for other senior care types. A significant number of nursing home residents are seniors who have mental or physical disabilities, experience difficulty with hearing and sight, have incontinence issues, or require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed. Types of amenities and services offered at nursing homes can include 24-hour emergency care, senior centers, room and board, and rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal reading materials, personal clothing, and specially prepared food. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from discrimination, make complaints, participate in activities, and get proper medical care. Many occupants tend to be single women who have circles of support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over 85 years old.
