Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides residence to two or more seniors who have no familial ties to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its occupants 24-hour care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers offer personal care, maintenance and other health related services for people who cannot take care of their needs because of mental or physical conditions.

Nursing homes are a convenient and comfortable care alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will usually take in persons 55 and greater rarely heard of in senior care regarding other care types. The most frequent mental disease experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their memory recall, decision making abilities, and and their sense of familiarity. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include cosmetic and grooming items, personal reading materials, and personal clothing. Nursing homes are required to provide a professionallly directed program of activities, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), pharmaceutical services, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. A significant portion of nursing home inhabitants are persons who experience difficulty with hearing and sight, require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, have mental or physical disabilities, or have incontinence issues. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from discrimination, participate in activities, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, and form or participate in resident groups.
