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 community 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 community 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 services provided 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. Nursing homes are required to provide specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), routine personal hygiene items, room and bed maintenance services, and dietary services to residents. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include a private room, unless medically needed, personal comfort items, and personal clothing.
