Kent, Washington

Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers residence to two or more seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its residents with 24-hour care by registered nurses. These nurses provide care for those who cannot take care of their needs.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and comfortable living alternative for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will frequently admit persons 55 and greater (a rarity in theworldof senior care).Often times seniors might choose life in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a physical or mental disability that makes it difficult for them to accomplish their standard of living. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to get information on services and fees, be free from abuse and neglect, have your representative notified about your care, and participate in activities. Some services come at an extra cost which can include a private room, unless medically needed, cosmetic and grooming items, and flowers and plants. Examples of care services and amenities offered at nursing homes might include skilled nursing or medical care, rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, 24-hour emergency care, and personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance).
