Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a facility that houses at least two individuals who have no personal relation to the administrator. This type of complex offers its occupants 24-hour care administered by registered nurses. These nurses provide healthcare services for seniors who are unable to properly care for themselves.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and easy care alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly take in individuals 55 and greater rarely heard of in senior care regarding alternate care types.There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal comfort items, cosmetic and grooming items, and a private room, unless medically needed. Types of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes might include injections, home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), friendly visitor programs, and help with legal questions.
