Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides residence to two or more seniors who have no familial relation to the administrator. This type of complex provides its occupants with 24-hour care by registered nurses. These nurses provide healthcare services for people who cannot properly take care of themselves because of their aging.

Nursing homes are a familiar and comfortable living option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will commonly admit persons 55 and older infrequentlyheard of in senior care regarding different care types.The most frequent mental issue effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory function, decision making capacities, and and familiarity. Types of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes might include personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance), friendly visitor programs, care coordination and case management, and injections. Many residents of nursing homes may have behavioral problems, which can consist of a tendency to wander, verbal outbursts, or resisting assistance. Some services come at an extra cost which can include specially prepared food, cosmetic and grooming items, and special care services not included in the facility's Medicaid payment. Nursing homes are required to provide a professionally directed program of activities, emergency dental services, medically-related social services, and dietary services to residents.

Demographics and Values

Cheltenham has a population density of 458 people per square mile.
