Nursing Homes

A nursing home is an establishment that houses two or more seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care by registered nurses. These nurses offer healthcare services for those who are unable to adequately take care of their needs.

This type of facility is a familiar and easy living alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will commonly admit individuals 55 and greater which is unusual for other senior care types.Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, dietary services, nursing and related services, and emergency dental services to residents. The most common mental disease effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their and their sense of familiarity, decision making abilities, and memory function. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to to manage your money, exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, have your representative notified about your care, and make complaints. Many residents of nursing homes are seniorswith . These can consist of verbal fits, resisting assistance, or experiencing a desire to wander. A large portion of nursing home residents are seniors who experience difficulty with hearing and seeing, have a physical or mental disability, have incontinence issues, or require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed.

Cost of Living

The neighborhood where a facility is based will have a major impact on the cost of care. Cost of living is a major influence in deciding which community works for you or your loved one. The rent burden for Gaffney is around 16.7% of the average monthly income.
