Nursing Homes

A nursing home is an establishment that houses at least two seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its occupants with around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for seniors who cannot take care of their needs.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and comfortable living choice for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly take in individuals 55 and greater (a rarity in the realm of senior care).A large number of inhabitants are bachelors or widows who have smaller social support groups, and about 50% of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. Some services come at an extra cost which can include flowers and plants, personal clothing, and special care services not included in the community’s Medicaid payment. Many residents of nursing homes might have behavioral issues. These can consist of resisting assistance, a tendency to wander, or verbal outbursts. The most frequent mental condition experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capabilities, memory recall, and and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings. A large portion of nursing home occupants are individuals who have incontinence issues, have a physical or mental disability, experience difficulty with hearing and vision, or require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed.
