Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and easy living choice for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually accept persons 55 and older (a rarity in the realm of senior care).There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include personal comfort items, cosmetic and grooming items, and specially prepared food. Many residents of nursing homes might have behavioral issues, which can consist of verbal outbursts, resisting assistance, or a tendency to wander. The most common mental issue effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, decision making abilities, and and familiarity. Nursing homes are required to provide routine personal hygiene items, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), room and bed maintenance services, and emergency dental services to residents.
