Wichita, Kansas

Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides room and board to two or more seniors who have no familial relation to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its occupants 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer care for seniors who are unable to take care of their needs because of the effects of aging.

This type of facility is a familiar and comfy care choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will usually take in persons 55 and older (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Types of care services and amenitiesoffered at nursing homes can include home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), friendly visitor programs, care coordination and case management, and skilled nursing or medical care. Some services come at an extra cost which can include special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, a private room, unless medically needed, and personal clothing. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral difficulties. These can consist of resisting care, a tendency to wander, or verbal outbursts. Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, a professionally directed program of activities, routine personal hygiene items, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. Often times seniors may prefer to live in a nursing home due to a physical or mental condition that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

Access to medical facilities can be a key consideration in determining the most suitable community. In total, there are 6 hospitals located in Wichita which offer emergency services and other healthcare. The top hospitals in Wichita include Kansas Heart Hospital, Wesley Medical Center, and Ascension Via Christi Hospital St. Teresa.

Cost of Living

The community in which a senior care community is based might have a big impact on the price of care. Cost of living is a major factor in deciding which location meets the needs of your loved one's needs. In terms of resources, Wichita has a grocery index rating of around 90.4 and a cost-of-living index of around 86.3.
