Many occupants of nursing homes are with behavioral problems, which can include verbal fits, resisting assistance, or a tendency to wander. Types of care services and amenitiesoffered at nursing homes might include friendly visitor programs, meal programs, intravenous or nutrition therapy, and adult day services .
