Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers lodging to at least two individuals who have no family ties to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its inhabitants with around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer care for people who are unable to take care of themselves due to their aging.

This type of community is a familiar and comfortable care option for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often admit individuals 55 and above (a rarity in the realm of senior care).A large number of nursing home occupants are persons who require assistance with daily tasks such as walking, have a physical or mental disability, experience difficulty with vision and hearing, or have incontinence issues. Types of amenities and services provided at nursing homes might include wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, friendly visitor programs, help with legal questions, and personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance). Nursing homes are required to provide routine personal hygiene items, nursing and related services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), and pharmaceutical services to residents. A large number of residents are bachelors or widows who have less social support, and about half of nursing home residents are over 85 years old. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, be free from restraints, get information on services and fees, and form or participate in resident groups.
