Nursing homes are required to provide a professionallly directed program of activities, routine personal hygiene items, dietary services, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. Often times individuals might decide life in a nursing home due to a physical or mental condition that prevents them from easily accomplishing their lifestyle goals. Many occupants are bachelors or widows with less social support, and almost half of nursing home residents are over 85 years old.
