Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a community that offers residence to at least two seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its residents around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These caregivers provide health related services for those who are unable to take care of themselves.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and comfy living option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often allow access to individuals 55 and greater rarely heard of in senior care regarding different care types. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal clothing, special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment, and a private room, unless medically needed. A significant number of nursing home occupants are individuals who have mental or physical disabilities, experience difficulty with hearing and seeing, require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, or have incontinence issues. A large number of occupants are bachelors or widows who have smaller social support groups, and about 50% of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral problems. These can consist of resisting assistance, verbal outbursts, or a tendency to wander.
