Complete guide to nursing homes

Merrillville, Indiana

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a complex that provides lodging to two or more seniors who have no personal relation to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its residents with around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for those who are unable to adequately care for their own needs.

This type of community is a convenient and easy care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually accept persons 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types. Examples of care services and amenities offered at nursing homes might include room and board, 24-hour emergency care, intravenous or nutrition therapy, and adult day services . A large number of occupants tend to be single women with circles of support, and almost fifty percent of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. The most common mental condition effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capacities, and familiarity with their surroundings, and memory function. Often times seniors might choose 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. Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, dietary services, nursing and related services, and a professionallly directed program of activities to residents.
