Complete guide to nursing homes

Palo Alto, California

Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers residence to at least two persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its occupants with around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses provide health related services for people who are unable to adequately take care of themselves due to mental or physical conditions.

This type of community is a helpful and easy care alternative for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will frequently admit individuals 55 and above which is unusual for other senior care types. The most common mental issue experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their decision making capacities, memory function, and and their sense of familiarity. A large portion of nursing home occupants are persons who experience difficulty with hearing and vision, have mental or physical disabilities, require assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, or have incontinence issues. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment, personal clothing, and specially prepared food. Many residents of nursing homes are seniors with interpersonal social issues, which can span verbal lash-outs, resisting assistance, or a tendency to wander. Many occupants are bachelors or widows who have circles of support, and almost fifty percent of nursing home residents are over 85 years old.
