Nursing Homes

A nursing home is an establishment that houses at least two persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its inhabitants with care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide personal care, maintenance and other health related services for seniors who cannot properly take care of their own needs because of mental or physical conditions.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and easy living choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly allow persons 55 and greater seldomheard of in senior care regarding other care types.A large portion of nursing home inhabitants are seniors who have a physical or mental disability, experience difficulty with hearing and seeing, have incontinence issues, or require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed. The most frequent mental disease effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their memory function, and their sense of familiarity, and decision making capacities. A large number of residents are bachelors or widows who have circles of support, and about fifty percent of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal clothing, flowers and plants, and special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, have your representative notified about your care, be free from restraints, and be treated with respect.

Cost of Living

The total cost of living can be a motivating factor when determining what destination fits best. The rent burden for Lexington is about 16.0% of the average person's monthly income. The median monthly rent in Lexington is about $1,052 and the median home value for Lexington costs around $175,089.
