Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers residence to two or more individuals who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of facility provides its residents with care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers provide care for people who are unable to take care of their own needs due to mental or physical conditions.

This type of facility is a familiar and comfy living alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often accept persons 55 and above (a rarity in theworldof senior care).The most frequent mental condition effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their memory recall, and familiarity, and decision making capabilities. A significant number of nursing home residents are individuals who experience difficulty with vision and hearing, have a physical or mental disability, have incontinence issues, or require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing. A significant amount of residents are bachelors or widows with smaller social support groups, and about 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral problems, which can consist of resisting care, verbal outbursts, or a tendency to wander. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to spend time with visitors, make complaints, get information on services and fees, and be treated with respect.

Cost of Living

The community where a senior care community is based can have a large influence on the total cost. Cost of living can be a big influence when determining which destination works for your family. Monthly, the median price of rent in Potomac is around $2,844 per month and the median home value in Potomac is $893,920.
