Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility provides residence to at least two individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of residence offers its occupants around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer healthcare services for people who are unable to care for themselves.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and comfortable care option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will allow access to persons 55 and greater which is uncommon for other senior care types.Many residents of nursing homes are with behavioral problems, which can span verbal fits, resisting care, or a propensity to wander. The most frequent mental disease effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their decision making capacities, and familiarity, and memory recall. Some services come at an extra cost which can include flowers and plants, personal comfort items, and specially prepared food. Types of care services and amenities offered at nursing homes can include home care (like cooking, cleaning, or help with other daily activities), care coordination and case management, meal programs, and injections. A large number of inhabitants are single women who have smaller social support groups, and about half of nursing home residents are over the age of 85.
