Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a building that houses at least two individuals who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its occupants around-the-clock care administered by registered nurses. These nurses provide health related services for those who cannot adequately care for their needs because of their aging.

This type of facility is a helpful and comfortable living alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will commonly allow persons 55 and older (a rarity in theworldof senior care).Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, nursing and related services, routine personal hygiene items, and emergency dental services to residents. Often times individuals may select to live in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a mental or physical condition that prevents them from easily accomplishing their standard of living. Types of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes can include wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, skilled nursing or medical care, rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, and social and recreational activities. The most common mental issue effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, and familiarity with their surroundings, and decision making capabilities. Many residents are bachelors or widows who have smaller social support groups, and about 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85.
