Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility provides lodging to at least two individuals who have no personal relation to the administrator. This type of residence offers its residents 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for people who cannot care for themselves because of their aging.

Nursing homes are a convenient and easy care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely allow access to individuals 55 and greater infrequentlyheard of in senior care regarding alternate care types.Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, dietary services, medically-related social services, and pharmaceutical services to residents. Many occupants of nursing homes are elderswith behavioral problems. These can encompass verbal outbursts, resisting help, or experiencing a desire to wander. Some services come at an extra cost which can include a private room, unless medically needed, personal comfort items, and specially prepared food. A large portion of nursing home residents are persons who require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, have incontinence issues, have a physical or mental disability, or experience difficulty seeing and hearing. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, get proper medical care, have your representative notified about your care, and make complaints.
