Complete guide to nursing homes

Shawnee, Kansas

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that houses two or more individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of complex provides its residents with 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These nurses provide maintenance, personal care and other health related services for people who cannot adequately take care of their needs.

Nursing homes are a familiar and easy care alternative for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will allow access to individuals 55 and older which is uncommon for other senior care types. The most common mental issue effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, decision making capabilities, and and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings. Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, medically-related social services, routine personal hygiene items, and dietary services to residents. Often times seniors may decide to live in a nursing home due to a mental or physical disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing their lifestyle goals. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, be free from discrimination, make complaints, and participate in activities. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include flowers and plants, cosmetic and grooming items, and special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment.
