A nursing home facility provides its residents with around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers provide specialized care for people who are unable to care for themselves.

This type of facility is a helpful and comfy care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will commonly take in individuals 55 and older seldomheard of in senior care regarding alternate care types.There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal comfort items, personal reading materials, and flowers and plants.
