Mercer Island, Washington

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a facility that offers lodging to at least two seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its residents with care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide personal care, maintenance and other health related services for people who cannot take care of themselves.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and easy living choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will allow access to individuals 55 and greater (a rarity in the realm of senior care).A large number of nursing home occupants are persons who require assistance with daily tasks such as walking, experience difficulty with hearing and sight, have mental or physical disabilities, or have incontinence issues. Many inhabitants are single women who have smaller social support groups, and about half of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. Some services come at an extra cost which can include a private room, unless medically needed, flowers and plants, and personal comfort items. The most frequent mental condition experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, and familiarity, and decision making abilities. Nursing homes are required to provide nursing and related services, emergency dental services, room and bed maintenance services, and dietary services to residents.
