Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a community that houses at least two seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its residents around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer care for people who cannot properly care for themselves.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and easy care choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly admit persons 55 and above rarely heard of in senior care regarding different care types. A significant amount of residents are bachelors or widows who have less social support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral troubles, which can consist of verbal outbursts, a tendency to wander, or resisting care. Examples of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes might include patient and caregiver education, 24-hour emergency care, adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) , and senior centers. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, be free from restraints, exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, and spend time with visitors. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal comfort items, personal clothing, and personal reading materials.
