Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers residence to at least two persons who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care by registered nurses. These caregivers offer care for people who cannot care for themselves because of the effects of aging.

Nursing homes are a convenient and comfy living option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will usually admit individuals 55 and above (a rarity in the realm of senior care).The most frequent mental disease experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory recall, decision making capacities, and and their sense of familiarity with their surroundings. Some services come at an extra cost which can include personal reading materials, a private room, unless medically needed, and personal comfort items. Many occupants of nursing homes may have behavioral issues, which can consist of resisting care, verbal outbursts, or a tendency to wander. Types of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes might include personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance), meal programs, skilled nursing or medical care, and adult day health care (which offers nursing and therapy) . Nursing homes are required to provide nursing and related services, pharmaceutical services, a professionally directed program of activities, and routine personal hygiene items to residents.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers
