Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers residence to at least two seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of residence provides its occupants with care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses provide maintenance, personal care and other health related services for people who are unable to care for their own needs.

This type of facility is a familiar and comfortable care choice for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will frequently individuals 55 and above (a rarity in the realm of senior care).As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, get proper medical care, get information on services and fees, and be treated with respect. The most frequent mental condition effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings, and decision making capacities. A large number of nursing home residents are individuals who experience difficulty with hearing and seeing, require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, have a physical or mental disability, or have incontinence issues. Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, emergency dental services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), and routine personal hygiene items to residents.
