Arlington, Massachusetts

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides lodging to two or more seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its inhabitants around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer personal care, maintenance and other health related services for those who cannot care for themselves.

This type of community is a convenient and comfortable care option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will accept individuals 55 and greater (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Often times seniors might select to live in a nursing home due to a physical or mental condition that makes it difficult for them to accomplish the activities of daily living. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to make complaints, exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, be free from discrimination, and spend time with visitors. Many occupants tend to be single women who have smaller social support groups, and about 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include cosmetic and grooming items, a private room, unless medically needed, and special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment. The most common mental condition experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capabilities, memory recall, and and familiarity with their surroundings.
