Nursing Homes

A nursing home provides residence to at least two individuals who have no familial ties to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care administered by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer specialized care for seniors who cannot care for their own needs.

This type of facility is a convenient and comfy living option for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will commonly persons 55 and greater which is unusual for other senior care types.The most frequent mental condition experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their and familiarity, decision making abilities, and memory recall. Often times persons might select to live in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a physical or mental impairment that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living. Examples of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes can include home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), monitoring of medication, help with shopping and transportation, and room and board. Nursing homes are required to provide specialized rehabilitative services (treatment for mental illness or intellectual disability), nursing and related services, pharmaceutical services, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. Some services come at an extra cost which can include specially prepared food, flowers and plants, and cosmetic and grooming items.
