Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers room and board to two or more persons who have no personal ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its residents with care by registered nurses. These caregivers provide specialized care for seniors who are unable to take care of themselves because of mental or physical conditions.

This type of facility is a familiar and easy care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often allow individuals 55 and above (a rarity in theworldof senior care).A large number of nursing home inhabitants are individuals who have incontinence issues, require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed, experience difficulty seeing and hearing, or have mental or physical disabilities. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal reading materials, flowers and plants, and a private room, unless medically needed. The most frequent mental condition experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their decision making capacities, and familiarity with their surroundings, and memory recall. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be treated with respect, form or participate in resident groups, have your representative notified about your care, and get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements. A significant amount of occupants are single women who have smaller social support groups, and almost fifty percent of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old.
