Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility offers residence to at least two persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of residence offers its inhabitants around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These caregivers provide personal care, maintenance and other health related services for those who cannot take care of their needs.

This type of facility is a helpful and comfy care option for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely admit persons 55 and greater rarely heard of in senior care regarding alternate care types.As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to be free from restraints, have your representative notified about your care, participate in activities, and get proper medical care. The most frequent mental disease effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capacities, memory recall, and and familiarity. A significant portion of nursing home inhabitants are persons who have incontinence issues, require assistance with daily tasks such as walking, experience difficulty seeing and hearing, or have a physical or mental disability. Examples of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes might include help with shopping and transportation, rehabilitation needed due to injury, disability, or illness, senior centers, and monitoring serious illness and unstable health status. A significant amount of inhabitants tend to be single women with circles of support, and about half of nursing home residents are over 85 years old.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

For many seniors, especially those who live with chronic diseases or those needing long-term treatment, proximity to medical facilities can be a major consideration in determining what type of care is best for them. The top hospitals that service Allentown include Sacred Heart Hospital, Lehigh Valley Hospital, and Surgical Specialty Center At Coordinated Health. In total, there are 3 hospitals located in Allentown which offer emergency services and other healthcare.
