Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that houses at least two seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its inhabitants with around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for people who cannot take care of themselves because of mental or physical conditions.

This type of community is a convenient and comfortable living alternative for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely take in individuals 55 and older infrequently heard of in senior care regarding alternate care types. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal clothing, a private room, unless medically needed, and personal comfort items. Many occupants of nursing homes are humans with interpersonal social issues, which can span verbal antagonism, resisting help, or a tendency to wander. Types of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes might include room and board, adult day services , 24-hour emergency care, and senior centers. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper medical care, spend time with visitors, be free from abuse and neglect, and form or participate in resident groups. The most common mental condition effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, and familiarity with their surroundings, and decision making abilities.
