If you or a loved one is recovering from an injury or hospitalization or are no longer able to live independently, your doctor may recommend receiving care at a nursing home. Nursing homes are long-term residential facilities for individuals who require day-to-day support with routine tasks or medical services.

Receiving care at a nursing home that best addresses your needs can improve your health outcomes, decrease your healthcare costs, and lower the chance that you will be readmitted to the hospital due to health complications.

This video will help you better understand nursing homes so you can make informed decisions about long-term care.
