Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that offers lodging to at least two persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its residents 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for seniors who are unable to adequately take care of themselves because of the effects of aging.

This type of community is a familiar and comfy living choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will frequently allow persons 55 and older (a rarity in the world of senior care).Nursing homes are required to provide routine personal hygiene items, pharmaceutical services, a professionallly directed program of activities, and emergency dental services to residents. The most common mental condition experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their and their sense of familiarity, decision making capacities, and memory recall. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal reading materials, cosmetic and grooming items, and a private room, unless medically needed. A significant amount of residents are single women with less social support, and about half of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old.
