Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers lodging to at least two persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its residents around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers offer maintenance, personal care and other health related services for people who cannot properly care for their needs because of mental or physical conditions, including age.

This type of facility is a helpful and easy care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will take in individuals 55 and older (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Many occupants of nursing homes might have behavioral difficulties. These can consist of resisting assistance, verbal outbursts, or a tendency to wander. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal clothing, special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, and specially prepared food. A significant portion of nursing home occupants are individuals who experience difficulty with hearing and sight, require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed, have a physical or mental disability, or have incontinence issues. Many occupants tend to be single women who have smaller social support groups, and almost half of nursing home residents are over 85 years old. The most frequent mental condition effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their decision making capacities, and familiarity, and memory function.
