Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers room and board to at least two seniors who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its residents around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses.

This type of community 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 the world of 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 community 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 amenities provided at nursing homes can include monitoring of medication, monitoring serious illness and unstable health status, senior centers, and 24-hour emergency care.
