Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that provides residence to at least two seniors who have no family relation to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its occupants with around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for seniors who cannot care for themselves.

Nursing homes are a convenient and comfortable living option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often admit persons 55 and greater infrequentlyheard of in senior care regarding alternate care types.Often times persons may choose life in a nursing home due to a mental or physical disability that makes it difficult for them to accomplish their standard of living. The most frequent mental disease experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, and familiarity, and decision making capabilities. Nursing homes are required to provide dietary services, a professionally directed program of activities, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), and room and bed maintenance services to residents. Many occupants tend to be single women who have circles of support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over 85 years old. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have your representative notified about your care, get information on services and fees, have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, and get proper medical care.
