Most nursing homes are set up like a hospital and provide 24-hour skilled nursing care. Nursing homes are the next best thing to hospital care. Nursing homes are best for seniors who may need physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, I-V therapy or constant care. Some nursing homes in Atlanta have special care units for patients with special medical care needs, such as advanced stages of Alzheimer's or other memory care conditions.

Some residents will return home after a short rehabilitative stay, following hospitalization for an illness or accident. Others may require nursing home care for an extended period, due to the chronic nature of their illness or disabilities.

Nursing homes vary from hospital-like settings to more home-like residences. Strict safety regulations are adhered to within these facilities to accommodate the physical and mental disabilities of their residents.

Many people pay for nursing home care out of their own private funds or have assistance from long-term-care insurance policies. Still others may receive financial help from state Medicaid programs, when their finances are depleted. The federal Medicare program will cover limited nursing home rehabilitative services for a specified period of time when deemed beneficial to an individual's care.

All Georgia nursing homes are inspected at least once a year by state and federal survey teams. To view the results, visit Medicare's Nursing Home Compare. When evaluating a prospective Nursing Home, LOOK, LISTEN, TASTE, and ASK. What to Look for in a Nursing Home.
