Lehigh Acres, Florida

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides residence to at least two individuals who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its inhabitants with around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses offer care for people who are unable to properly care for themselves.

This type of community is a familiar and comfortable care choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will usually allow individuals 55 and above which is unusual for other senior care types. Nursing homes are required to provide specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), a professionallly directed program of activities, pharmaceutical services, and dietary services to residents. Some services come at an extra cost which can include cosmetic and grooming items, personal comfort items, and flowers and plants. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral difficulties, which can consist of a tendency to wander, verbal outbursts, or resisting care. The most frequent mental issue experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their decision making abilities, and familiarity, and memory function. Types of care services and amenities offered at nursing homes can include skilled nursing or medical care, meal programs, adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) , and help with legal questions.
