Kennebunk, Maine

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community provides lodging to two or more seniors who have no familial relation to the administrator. A nursing home community provides its occupants with around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide care for people who cannot properly care for their own needs.

Nursing homes are a helpful and comfortable living option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely take in individuals 55 and older which is for other senior care types. A significant amount of residents tend to be single women with circles of support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. Many residents of nursing homes are humans with behavioral problems, which can span verbal fits, resisting care, or a propensity to wander. Nursing homes are required to provide routine personal hygiene items, pharmaceutical services, nursing and related services, and emergency dental services to residents. Examples of amenities and services offered at nursing homes might include injections, 24-hour emergency care, adult day services , and personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance). The most frequent mental issue experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their decision making capabilities, and their sense of familiarity, and memory function.
