A nursing home facility provides room and board to at least two seniors who have no family ties to the administrator. This type of residence offers its occupants around-the-clock care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer health related services for seniors who cannot take care of themselves due to their aging.

This type of facility is a familiar and comfy living alternative for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will often take in persons 55 and greater infrequentlyheard of in senior care regarding alternate care types.Examples of amenities and servicesprovided at nursing homes can include meal programs, skilled nursing or medical care, friendly visitor programs, and social and recreational activities. Many residents tend to be bachelors or widows with smaller social support groups, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are older than 85 years old. Nursing homes are required to provide pharmaceutical services, routine personal hygiene items, a professionallly directed program of activities, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. The most frequent mental disease effecting residents of nursing homes is dementia, which can cloud their and familiarity, decision making abilities, and memory function.
