Many occupants of nursing homes are humanswith interpersonal social issues, which can span verbal fits, resisting assistance, or a propensity to wander. Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, medically-related social services, a professionally directed program of activities, and pharmaceutical services to residents.
