Hanover, Pennsylvania

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that houses two or more seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its occupants 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These nurses provide healthcare services for seniors who cannot properly care for themselves.

This type of facility is a familiar and comfy living choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will allow access to persons 55 and above which is uncommon for other senior care types.There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal comfort items, specially prepared food, and cosmetic and grooming items. The most common mental condition experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their and their sense of familiarity, memory function, and decision making capabilities. Often times seniors might prefer life in a nursing home due to a physical or mental disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living. Types of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes might include skilled nursing or medical care, 24-hour emergency care, care coordination and case management, and monitoring serious illness and unstable health status. Many inhabitants tend to be bachelors or widows who have less social support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85.

Cost of Living

The overall cost of living can be the big influence in choosing what facility works best. The rent burden for Hanover is about 20.1% of the average person's monthly income. Monthly, the median rent in Hanover is around $1,085 per month and the median price of a house in Hanover is $155,673.
