Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides residence to two or more individuals who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its inhabitants with care by on-site nurses. These nurses provide healthcare services for seniors who cannot take care of themselves due to mental or physical conditions.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and comfortable living option for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely accept individuals 55 and greater (a rarity in theworldof senior care).Many residents of nursing homes are persons with behavioral difficulties. These can consist of resisting assistance, a tendency to wander, or verbal outbursts. Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, a professionallly directed program of activities, nursing and related services, and specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability) to residents. The most frequent mental condition experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, and familiarity, and decision making capabilities. A significant amount of occupants are single women who have circles of support, and almost fifty percent of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be treated with respect, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, get information on services and fees, and exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen.
