Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers room and board to at least two persons who have no personal ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its residents with care administered by registered nurses. These nurses provide specialized care for those who cannot properly take care of themselves because of the effects of aging.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfy care alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely persons 55 and older (a rarity in theworldof senior care).The most frequent mental disease experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making abilities, and their sense of familiarity, and memory function. Examples of care services and amenitiesoffered at nursing homes can include senior centers, injections, room and board, and adult day services . Some services come at an extra cost which can include flowers and plants, special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, and personal clothing. Many residents of nursing homes are seniorswith , which can encompass verbal outbursts, resisting care, or experiencing a desire to wander. Many residents are single women with less social support, and about 50% of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

Proximity to medical facilities is an important factor when choosing the best care option. In total, there are 16 hospitals located in New York which offer emergency services and other healthcare. The top hospitals in New York include Hospital For Special Surgery, Nyu Langone Hospitals, and Mount Sinai Hospital.

Cost of Living

The community in which a care facility is based will have a large impact on the cost of care. Cost of living can be a major influence in determining which community is best for your family. The sales tax in New York is 4.00%. When it comes to resources, New York has a cost-of-living index of 209.3 and a grocery-price index of around 114.7. These index scores are founded on a spectrum where 100 is the national average and any score over 100 is considered costlier than the national average.
