Senior Housing Options in Maryland

The decision to move an aging loved one into a nursing home may be one of the most difficult you will ever make. In fact, it is common for adult children to promise themselves they will never subject a parent to “that kind of place.” They may be sincere, but that kind of promise is made in light of the circumstances as they exist at the time.

When it comes to finding the right nursing home for your elderly loved ones to call home, we understand the importance of locating a reputable facility. If you have a loved one in Maryland, we’ve put together a list of nursing home options for you to choose from. Why should you help your loved one make the transition into a nursing home? Nursing homes provide what is called custodial care, including getting in and out of bed, and providing assistance with feeding, bathing, and dressing. These communities typically have staff on hand 24 hours a day so you can rest assured knowing your mother, father, or loved one are being cared for around the clock. They are able to maintain a neighborhood feel by not having fixed schedules and allowing the residents to make their own daily plans.

Choosing the Right Nursing Home

Some housing options just provide a place to live; other arrangements provide a partial or full range of services that can be used as a loved ones’ needs and ability to function independently change. Alternative living options available in Maryland include: Assisted Living, Congregate Housing, Adult Family Care Homes, and Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC). Nursing homes provide care to people who need extensive nursing care or 24-hour supervision for a long period of time or short-term nursing care for rehabilitation after a hospital stay or illness.

The label “nursing home” often has negative connotations for many people. But it’s important to remember that nursing homes provide an important component of senior housing options. When you hear the term “nursing home,” remember that these facilities provide a reliable solution for many families, like yours. Nursing home patients typically suffer from severe illnesses including cardiac and respiratory disesases or are recovering from a serious injury such as a hip fracture, so they are unable to care for themselves. Nursing homes make caregiving more accessible for families throughout Maryland. Whether you’re looking for a local nursing home you can visit on the weekends, or a top tier nursing home facility where your loved ones can live a long and healthy life surrounded by friends, Hammond and Associates can help you determine the right solution for your situation.

How Do I Know It’s Time for a Nursing Home?

When a caregiver can no longer meet the demands of providing the amount of care required for their loved one, a nursing home may be the right choice. Deciding to place a loved one in a nursing home should be based on whether he or she is:

  • Suffering from a chronic disability;
  • Experiencing deteriorating mental and physical capacities;
  • Living alone or lacking someone who can continue to care for them;
  • Spending more time in and out of hospitals;
  • Having more difficulty with the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, using the toilet, eating or transferring from bed to chair.

Let Hammond and Associates Help Select a Nursing Home

Caring for an aging parent or spouse is tough work. As an elderly person requires more and more care, the tired family caregiver often scolds himself or herself for not loving more, for not working harder, and for not having more energy. Yet it is difficult to give the type of constant loving care that many elders need. Nursing homes provide care to people who need extensive nursing care or 24-hour supervision for a long period of time or short-term nursing care for rehabilitation after a hospital stay or illness.
