Nursing Homes

A nursing home is an establishment that provides residence to two or more persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of residence provides its residents with around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers offer healthcare services for people who are unable to take care of their needs.

This type of facility is a helpful and easy living alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will frequently allow individuals 55 and greater (a rarity in the realm of senior care).There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include flowers and plants, cosmetic and grooming items, and specially prepared food. The most common mental condition effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, decision making capacities, and and their sense of familiarity. Nursing homes are required to provide specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), pharmaceutical services, dietary services, and emergency dental services to residents. Types of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes might include adult day services , friendly visitor programs, rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, and patient and caregiver education. A large number of nursing home occupants are seniors who require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, experience difficulty with hearing and vision, have incontinence issues, or have mental or physical disabilities.

Cost of Living

The total cost of living can be a major factor in choosing which community is best for you or your loved one. Monthly, the median price of rent in Morristown is $617 per month and the median price of a home in Morristown costs around $110,810.
