A nursing home offers residence to two or more persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of establishment offers its occupants around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for those who are unable to care for their needs.

This type of facility is a helpful and comfy living alternative for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will usually allow persons 55 and older which is uncommon for other senior care types.As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, be free from abuse and neglect, and spend time with visitors. Examples of care services and amenitiesprovided at nursing homes might include friendly visitor programs, 24-hour emergency care, skilled nursing or medical care, and wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound. A significant number of nursing home residents are individuals who have incontinence issues, require assistance with daily tasks such as walking, experience difficulty with hearing and sight, or have a physical or mental disability. Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, a professionally directed program of activities, nursing and related services, and specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability) to residents. Many residents of nursing homes might have behavioral troubles. These can consist of verbal outbursts, a tendency to wander, or resisting assistance.
