Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that houses two or more persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of complex provides its occupants with around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses offer healthcare services for seniors who cannot care for their needs.

This type of facility is a helpful and comfy care choice for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely allow persons 55 and above which is uncommon for other senior care types.A large number of occupants are single women with circles of support, and almost fifty percent of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. Some services come at an extra cost which can include cosmetic and grooming items, special care services not included in the facility’s Medicaid payment, and personal reading materials. A large number of nursing home inhabitants are persons who experience difficulty with hearing and seeing, have mental or physical disabilities, require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed, or have incontinence issues. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to make complaints, get information on services and fees, have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, and be treated with respect. Examples of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes can include care coordination and case management, 24-hour emergency care, monitoring of medication, and rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness.
