Palatka, Florida

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers room and board to two or more persons who have no family ties to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer specialized care for seniors who are unable to adequately take care of their own needs.

This type of community is a familiar and comfy living option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often accept individuals 55 and above infrequently heard of in senior care regarding alternate care types. Examples of amenities and services provided at nursing homes can include home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), meal programs, intravenous or nutrition therapy, and injections. Many residents of nursing homes might have behavioral difficulties. These can consist of verbal outbursts, resisting care, or a tendency to wander. A large number of inhabitants are single women with smaller social support groups, and about half of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old.
