Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers room and board to two or more individuals who have no family relation to the administrator. This type of residence offers its inhabitants around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These nurses provide maintenance, personal care and other health related services for people who cannot properly care for themselves.

This type of community is a familiar and comfortable living option for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often take in persons 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types. Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, nursing and related services, emergency dental services, and routine personal hygiene items to residents. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be treated with respect, be free from restraints, get proper medical care, and form or participate in resident groups. Many residents of nursing homes are humans with behavioral problems. These can span verbal antagonism, resisting support, or a tendency to wander. The most frequent mental disease effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory function, and familiarity with their surroundings, and decision making capabilities.
