Nursing Homes

A nursing home offers lodging to at least two seniors who have no family relation to the administrator. A nursing home facility offers its inhabitants around-the-clock care by registered nurses. These caregivers provide healthcare services for people who cannot care for themselves.

Nursing homes can be a familiar and comfy care alternative for persons 65 years or older, however nursing homes will often admit individuals 55 and above which is for other senior care types.Nursing homes are required to provide emergency dental services, a professionally directed program of activities, nursing and related services, and routine personal hygiene items to residents. Often times persons might choose to live in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a physical or mental impairment that makes it difficult for them to accomplish their lifestyle goals. The most common mental issue experienced by residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can hinder their and familiarity with their surroundings, decision making capabilities, and memory function. Examples of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes might include room and board, 24-hour emergency care, meal programs, and care coordination and case management.
