Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex 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 occupants around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These nurses offer healthcare services for seniors who are unable to properly care for themselves.

Nursing homes are a familiar and comfortable care choice for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will allow individuals 55 and older (a rarity in the world of senior care).A large number of inhabitants are single women who have circles of support, and about half of nursing home residents are over 85 years old. The most frequent mental disease experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capabilities, and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings, and memory recall. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal comfort items, flowers and plants, and personal reading materials. Many occupants of nursing homes might have behavioral difficulties. These can consist of verbal outbursts, resisting assistance, or a tendency to wander. Examples of amenities and services offered at nursing homes can include friendly visitor programs, adult day services , bill pay, and rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness.
