Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers lodging to two or more persons who have no familial relation to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its occupants around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These nurses provide care for seniors who are unable to properly take care of their own needs because of mental or physical conditions.

This type of community is a convenient and easy care option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely allow individuals 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to participate in activities, be treated with respect, form or participate in resident groups, and to manage your money. A large number of inhabitants tend to be bachelors or widows who have circles of support, and about fifty percent of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85. The most common mental condition experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making abilities, memory function, and and their sense of familiarity. A large portion of nursing home residents are individuals who have incontinence issues, have mental or physical disabilities, require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed, or experience difficulty with hearing and sight. Many residents of nursing homes might have behavioral troubles, which can consist of verbal outbursts, resisting assistance, or a tendency to wander.
