Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers room and board to at least two seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its residents around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers provide health related services for people who are unable to take care of themselves due to their aging.

This type of facility is a familiar and easy care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will commonly accept individuals 55 and older (a rarity in theworldof senior care).The most common mental condition experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their and familiarity, memory recall, and decision making capacities. Often times persons might decide life in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a mental or physical impairment that makes it difficult for them to accomplish their lifestyle goals. Many occupants of nursing homes might have behavioral difficulties. These can consist of a tendency to wander, resisting care, or verbal outbursts. Examples of care services and amenitiesprovided at nursing homes can include monitoring of medication, monitoring serious illness and unstable health status, senior centers, and 24-hour emergency care. Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, dietary services, medically-related social services, and nursing and related services to residents.
