Nursing Homes

A nursing home facility provides residence to at least two persons who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. This type of facility provides its occupants with around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These nurses provide maintenance, personal care and other health related services for seniors who are unable to take care of their needs.

This type of facility is a helpful and comfortable care alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will frequently take in persons 55 and greater which is unusual for other senior care types.Types of amenities and servicesoffered at nursing homes might include skilled nursing or medical care, senior centers, monitoring of medication, and bill pay. Many occupants tend to be single women with smaller social support groups, and almost fifty percent of nursing home residents are over 85 years old. A significant number of nursing home inhabitants are individuals who require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed, experience difficulty with hearing and vision, have a physical or mental disability, or have incontinence issues. The most common mental disease experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their and familiarity, memory recall, and decision making capabilities.
