This type of facility is a convenient and comfortable care choice for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will persons 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types.Nursing homes are required to provide nursing and related services, pharmaceutical services, room and bed maintenance services, and specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability) to residents. Many residents of nursing homes are seniorswith . These can of verbal outbursts, resisting care, or a propensity to wander. Some services come at an extra cost which can include special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment, flowers and plants, and personal reading materials. Often times individuals might decide life in a nursing home due to a physical or mental condition that makes it difficult for them to accomplish their standard of living. A significant amount of occupants tend to be single women with less social support, and about half of nursing home residents are older than the age of 85.
