Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers room and board to at least two seniors who have no personal ties to the administrator. A nursing home community offers its occupants around-the-clock care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses provide care for those who are unable to properly care for themselves.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfortable care option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely accept persons 55 and older (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Nursing homes are required to provide room and bed maintenance services, specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), a professionallly directed program of activities, and pharmaceutical services to residents. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include flowers and plants, personal reading materials, and cosmetic and grooming items. Many occupants of nursing homes are individuals with interpersonal social issues. These can span verbal fits, resisting help, or an urge to wander.
