Types of care services and amenitiesprovided at nursing homes can include skilled nursing or medical care, rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, social and recreational activities, and adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) . There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, specially prepared food, and flowers and plants. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral problems. These can consist of resisting assistance, verbal outbursts, or a tendency to wander. Nursing homes are required to provide a professionally directed program of activities, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), room and bed maintenance services, and dietary services to residents.
