Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides residence to at least two persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its occupants 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses provide care for those who cannot take care of their own needs.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfy living alternative for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will frequently take in individuals 55 and above which is unusual for other senior care types. Examples of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes might include wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, bill pay, friendly visitor programs, and personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance). The most frequent mental condition experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, decision making capacities, and and their sense of familiarity. Often times seniors may choose life in a nursing home over another type of community due to a physical or mental disability that makes it difficult for them to accomplish the activities of daily living. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal comfort items, flowers and plants, and special care services not included in the community's Medicaid payment. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper medical care, get information on services and fees, have your representative notified about your care, and get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements.

Cost of Living

The neighborhood in which a community is located might have a big effect on the overall cost. The total cost of living is a major factor in deciding which care option is the best fit for your loved one. The rent burden for Hagerstown is around 20.5% of the average monthly income. The median monthly rent in Hagerstown is about $1,051 and the median price for a house for Hagerstown is about $148,014.

Demographics and Values

In Hagerstown, 18.9% have some form of disability, 27.2% live in poverty, 63.7% participate in the labor force, and 9.5% do not have health insurance. Hagerstown has a population density of 1,279 people per square mile. Racially, the population of Hagerstown is 0.0% Pacific Islander or Native Hawaiian, 70.2% white, 2.5% Asian, 7.1% mixed race, 7.6% Hispanic, 17.7% black, 2.2% other or not specified, and 0.3% Native American. In terms of education, 17.1% have a college degree, 36.6% have a high-school diploma, and 6.1% have a graduate degree. Out of the total city population, 47.0% are male and 53.0% are female. The median age of Hagerstown is 35 years old. In Hagerstown, 8.2% of the people are veterans.
