Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers room and board to at least two seniors who have no familial ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its occupants around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for seniors who are unable to take care of themselves.

This type of facility is a familiar and easy living alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually allow access to individuals 55 and older (a rarity in theworldof senior care).Many occupants of nursing homes are seniorswith interpersonal social issues. These can span verbal antagonism, resisting help, or a tendency to wander. Many residents are single women with smaller social support groups, and almost half of nursing home residents are over 85 years old. The most common mental condition effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their memory recall, decision making abilities, and and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings. Examples of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes can include help with shopping and transportation, friendly visitor programs, senior centers, and adult day services . As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to to manage your money, get proper privacy, property, and living arrangements, get proper medical care, and make complaints.
