Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that offers lodging to two or more persons who have no family ties to the administrator. This type of complex offers its inhabitants 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer healthcare services for seniors who are unable to take care of their needs.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfy care choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely admit individuals 55 and above which is for other senior care types.Often times individuals might choose to live in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a mental or physical condition that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal clothing, cosmetic and grooming items, and special care services not included in the facility’s Medicaid payment. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get information on services and fees, be free from abuse and neglect, have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge, and get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements. Examples of care services and amenities offered at nursing homes can include social and recreational activities, home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), skilled nursing or medical care, and meal programs.
