Nursing Homes

Sub categories include:

These are nursing homes who have special "secure units" for residents in the middle to late stages of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias who are at risk of wandering. They also offer room, board, housekeeping, personal care, and supervision. (See Also: Housing Options - Alzheimer's/Memory Impaired Housing; and Mental Health - Alzheimer's Memory impaired and Mental Health - Facility based Mental Health Services).
Also known as Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), Nursing Homes provide 24-hour medical and social services to frail elderly and chronically disabled individuals, and those in need of rehabilitation. All nursing homes provide inpatient rehabilitation. These residential facilities represent the most complex level of senior care on a short or long term basis. Many have Alzheimer's/Special Care Units designed to serve individuals with memory impairments. Some offer short-term respite stays
