Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers residence to two or more individuals who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its residents with care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer healthcare services for seniors who cannot adequately care for their own needs due to the effects of aging.

This type of facility is a familiar and comfortable care choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually persons 55 and greater (a rarity in theworldof senior care).Many occupants of nursing homes are elderswith behavioral problems. These can consist of verbal antagonism, resisting help, or an urge to wander. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, have your representative notified about your care, participate in activities, and get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal clothing, specially prepared food, and cosmetic and grooming items. Types of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes can include adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) , intravenous or nutrition therapy, patient and caregiver education, and injections. Many residents tend to be bachelors or widows who have smaller social support groups, and about 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85.

Cost of Living

The neighborhood in which a senior care community is located will have a large effect on the overall price. Cost of living is a motivating factor in determining which care option meets the needs of your loved one's needs.
