Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides room and board to at least two seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of residence provides its inhabitants with care administered by registered nurses. These nurses provide personal care, maintenance and other health related services for those who are unable to care for themselves because of the effects of aging.

Nursing homes can be a helpful and comfortable care option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will accept persons 55 and older which is unusual for other senior care types. Many occupants of nursing homes are with behavioral problems, which can consist of verbal fits, resisting assistance, or experiencing a desire to wander. The most frequent mental disease experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capabilities, memory recall, and and familiarity with their surroundings. Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, a professionallly directed program of activities, dietary services, and medically-related social services to residents. Examples of amenities and services provided at nursing homes can include help with legal questions, rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, injections, and wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound.
