Nursing homes are a familiar and easy care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will commonly admit persons 55 and greater which is for other senior care types.Types of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes might include skilled nursing or medical care, friendly visitor programs, meal programs, and adult day services . Nursing homes are required to provide nursing and related services, dietary services, room and bed maintenance services, and pharmaceutical services to residents.
