Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a community that offers residence to at least two persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator.

There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment, personal comfort items, and specially prepared food. Many inhabitants tend to be single women with smaller social support groups, and almost half of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. The most frequent mental issue effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their and familiarity with their surroundings, decision making abilities, and memory recall.
