Salem, Oregon

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that offers lodging to two or more individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of complex offers its inhabitants around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide care for people who cannot adequately care for themselves.

This type of facility is a helpful and easy living option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often allow individuals 55 and above (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, dietary services, medically-related social services, and pharmaceutical services to residents. Many occupants tend to be single women who have circles of support, and about half of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. A significant portion of nursing home inhabitants are seniors who experience difficulty with hearing and sight, have incontinence issues, require assistance with daily tasks such as walking, or have a physical or mental disability. Many occupants of nursing homes are individuals with behavioral issues. These can consist of a tendency to wander, resisting assistance, or verbal outbursts. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, get proper medical care, have your representative notified about your care, and make complaints.
