Complete guide to nursing homes

Kingsport, Tennessee

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a facility that provides residence to two or more individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care administered by registered nurses. These nurses offer health related services for seniors who are unable to properly take care of themselves because of mental or physical conditions, including age.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfortable care option for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will frequently admit persons 55 and older (a rarity in theworldof senior care).Many residents of nursing homes are with behavioral problems, which can include verbal antagonism, resisting assistance, or an urge to wander. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include special care services not included in the facility’s Medicaid payment, personal clothing, and personal reading materials. Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, a professionallly directed program of activities, dietary services, and emergency dental services to residents. The most frequent mental issue experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings, decision making capabilities, and memory recall. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get information on services and fees, exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen, be free from restraints, and get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements.
