Nursing homes overview

Nursing homes are healthcare facilities that offer a higher level of care than could be provided through home care or assisted living. Nursing homes in the U.S. offer a variety of health care services for residents. As of 2015, a majority of U.S. nursing homes offered skilled nursing as part of their health programs. The largest sector of nursing home employment is nursing assistants. Nursing assistants provide a majority of the direct patient care in nursing homes in the U.S.

U.S. nursing home facilities

The number of nursing homes in the U.S. has gradually declined in recent years. Despite declining numbers overall, the number of nursing homes owned by for-profit entities has increased. Given the decline in the number of nursing homes in the U.S. in recent years one may expect the number of nursing home beds to have declined. However, the number of nursing home beds in the U.S. has remained relatively stable.
