Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides room and board to two or more persons who have no personal ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its occupants around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These nurses provide care for those who are unable to care for themselves.

This type of facility is a helpful and comfortable care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely accept persons 55 and above rarely heard of in senior care regarding other care types.The most frequent mental issue effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory function, decision making abilities, and and familiarity. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get information on services and fees, have your representative notified about your care, be free from abuse and neglect, and be treated with respect. Types of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes can include intravenous or nutrition therapy, care coordination and case management, room and board, and wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound.
