Aging is one of toughest reality that any person cannot escape. It is universal truth that everybody will become old and weak one day with the passage of time. It is sad to see that some elderly people do not get the care that they need in their old age by their family members due to financial or personal reasons. Thus, these elderly people are recommended to get admitted in a nursing facility.
What is a Nursing Home?
A Nursing home is considered as home for the people who needed home care and cannot be admitted in hospital. In simple words, a nursing home provides basic care facilities to the elder people who are not cared by their own families due to various reasons. Nursing homes have skilled nurses and nursing assistants who will be available twenty-four hours a day. It is to be noted that nursing homes are not only for elderly people but also for those people who need twenty-four hours care.
Most of the people are of the opinion that nursing facilities does not care about human emotions and that the residents of a nursing care unit either lie on bed or sit on the rocking chairs all day. However, that is not the case as nursing facilities offer a lot of activities that makes the lives of the patient’s joyful. They conduct day to day activities to keep the residents mentally fit and stay away from negative thoughts and keep the brain active. A recent study has shown that conducting interesting activities on a daily basis contribute a lot towards declining the depression level among the residents of nursing homes. Regular activities help them to keep the spirit and body alive.
Objective of a Nursing Home
The basic objective of a nursing home is to keep the residents healthy and happy as far as possible considering both their physical and mental well being. The activities conducted by the nursing home must be interesting and different and also it should be suitable to all the people irrespective their physical disabilities. The aim of the nursing homes is to build healthy and good relationship with the residents along with development of new skills and keeping up the level of fitness.
Types of Nursing
Currently, there are three types of nursing home operational. The categories of nursing homes are mentioned below;
Skilled Nursing Home
Intermediate Nursing Home; and
Supervised Nursing Home
Each of the above-mentioned nursing homes provides care to its residents. The selection of nursing home is clearly based on the following aspects;
A good nursing home must match the medical as well as psychological needs of the patients considering the existing resources. For example, all elderly people may not require same medical care as medical issues differs from person to person.
Most elderly people living in nursing homes may still are productive. Considering such residents are provided activities which can make them productive for more years to come. A good nursing home encourages continuing their hobbies and participating in various activities conducted by the nursing homes for the welfare of the community.
