Nursing Homes

A nursing home is an establishment that houses at least two individuals who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of facility provides its residents with 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses. These nurses offer specialized care for people who cannot care for their own needs.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and comfortable living option for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely allow access to persons 55 and older seldomheard of in senior care regarding care types.Many residents of nursing homes are individuals with interpersonal social issues. These can span verbal fits, resisting help, or experiencing a desire to wander. Nursing homes are required to provide specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), nursing and related services, a professionally directed program of activities, and pharmaceutical services to residents. Often times persons might prefer life in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a physical or mental disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing their lifestyle goals. The most common mental issue experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their memory function, decision making capabilities, and and their sense of familiarity.
