Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides lodging to at least two seniors who have no personal ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its occupants with care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide specialized care for people who are unable to care for their own needs.

This type of facility is a convenient and comfortable care choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will individuals 55 and older (a rarity in the realm of senior care).There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include cosmetic and grooming items, personal comfort items, and specially prepared food. The most common mental issue experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, decision making abilities, and and their sense of familiarity. Nursing homes are required to provide nursing and related services, pharmaceutical services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), and dietary services to residents. A significant number of nursing home occupants are persons who have incontinence issues, have mental or physical disabilities, experience difficulty seeing and hearing, or require assistance with daily tasks such as walking. Types of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes might include help with legal questions, help with shopping and transportation, adult day services , and room and board.

Cost of Living

The cost of care for a community is influenced by the community in which it is located. The rent burden for Columbia is about 18.7% of the average monthly income. Per month, the median price of rent in Columbia is about $1,991 per month and the median home value in Columbia is $367,637.
