Harpswell, Maine

Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers lodging to two or more seniors who have no personal ties to the administrator. This type of establishment offers its occupants 24-hour care administered by registered nurses. These nurses offer health related services for those who are unable to properly take care of themselves because of their aging.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and easy living choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will frequently take in individuals 55 and above rarely heard of in senior care regarding other care types. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from abuse and neglect, be free from discrimination, form or participate in resident groups, and have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include cosmetic and grooming items, a private room, unless medically needed, and special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment. The most common mental disease effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capabilities, and familiarity with their surroundings, and memory recall. Often times seniors may decide life in a nursing home over another type of community due to a physical or mental disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing the activities of daily living.
