Complete guide to nursing homes

Lowell, Massachusetts

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers residence to two or more persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of complex provides its inhabitants with care by registered nurses. These caregivers offer personal care, maintenance and other health related services for people who cannot care for themselves due to mental or physical conditions, including age.

This type of community is a convenient and comfortable care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often take in persons 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from abuse and neglect, be treated with respect, have your representative notified about your care, and form or participate in resident groups. Often times seniors might decide life in a nursing home due to a physical or mental condition that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living. The most common mental condition effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capacities, memory function, and and their sense of familiarity. Nursing homes are required to provide routine personal hygiene items, room and bed maintenance services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), and dietary services to residents. Many occupants of nursing homes are individuals with behavioral issues, which can consist of verbal outbursts, resisting assistance, or a tendency to wander.
