Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides room and board to two or more individuals who have no familial relation to the administrator. This type of residence offers its inhabitants 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer specialized care for people who are unable to adequately take care of their own needs.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and comfortable living choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly accept individuals 55 and older (a rarity in the world of senior care).Often times seniors might decide to live in a nursing home due to a physical or mental disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal comfort items, personal clothing, and cosmetic and grooming items. The most frequent mental issue effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their and their sense of familiarity, decision making capacities, and memory recall. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to form or participate in resident groups, to manage your money, be free from discrimination, and be treated with respect. Nursing homes are required to provide routine personal hygiene items, medically-related social services, a professionallly directed program of activities, and specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability) to residents.
