Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility provides room and board to at least two persons who have no personal relation to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its inhabitants with around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer care for people who are unable to properly care for their needs.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and easy care choice for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely allow access to individuals 55 and above rarely heard of in senior care regarding different care types.Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, dietary services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), and nursing and related services to residents. Often times persons may choose life in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a mental or physical disability that makes it difficult for them to accomplish the activities of daily living. Some services come at an extra cost which can include a private room, unless medically needed, specially prepared food, and personal clothing. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to spend time with visitors, be free from discrimination, to manage your money, and be free from abuse and neglect. The most common mental issue effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their and familiarity, decision making abilities, and memory recall.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

For many seniors, especially those who have chronic illnesses or those who are in need of long-term therapy, proximity to medical facilities can be a key component while selecting which care home best fits their needs. In total, there are 5 hospitals located in Columbia which offer emergency services and other healthcare. The top hospitals in Columbia include Providence Health, Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge, and Palmetto Health Baptist.

Cost of Living

Senior living community price is determined by the city where it is located. The cost of living index for Columbia is 89.6 based on an average rating of 100, where any amount beneath 100 is cheaper than the average amount. Columbia has a grocery price index of around 91.9. Columbia has a sales tax of 6.00%.

Regional Climate and Weather Information

For many seniors, climate and weather are the most significant influence in deciding on a facility. During the summertime, Columbia is approximately 82°F.
