Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides room and board to at least two seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its inhabitants around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer health related services for people who cannot properly take care of their needs due to the effects of aging.

Nursing homes are a helpful and easy living option for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly allow individuals 55 and greater rarely heard of in senior care regarding other care types.The most frequent mental disease experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their and familiarity, decision making capabilities, and memory recall. A significant amount of inhabitants tend to be single women who have less social support, and almost half of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85. Examples of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes can include home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), skilled nursing or medical care, wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, and injections. Nursing homes are required to provide nursing and related services, a professionally directed program of activities, medically-related social services, and pharmaceutical services to residents. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to participate in activities, be free from discrimination, form or participate in resident groups, and have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge.
