Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility provides residence to at least two individuals who have no family ties to the administrator. This type of establishment provides its residents with care by on-site nurses. These nurses offer healthcare services for those who cannot take care of themselves due to mental or physical conditions, including age.

This type of facility is a convenient and easy care alternative for individuals 65 years and above, however nursing homes will commonly admit persons 55 and greater (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Examples of care services and amenitiesoffered at nursing homes can include help with legal questions, skilled nursing or medical care, bill pay, and monitoring of medication. Many occupants of nursing homes are seniorswith interpersonal social issues. These can encompass verbal antagonism, resisting aid, or an urge to wander. The most frequent mental condition effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can hinder their memory function, and familiarity with their surroundings, and decision making capacities.
