What is a Nursing Home
A nursing home is a place for people who don't need to be in a hospital but who require more assistance or treatment than is available at home.
Nursing homes offer long term care to people who need the safety and security of a residential setting. Residents may require personal and professional care, and may also need some assistance with daily living.Most nursing homes have nursing staff on hand 24 hours a day.
Some nursing homes are set up like a hospital, with nursing and medical care, as well as physical, speech and occupational therapies.
Others are set up more like a home, offering supported living, and are often more open and flexible e.g. with less rigid day-to-day schedules and facilities (like kitchens) open to residents.
Some will let couples live together. Nursing homes are not only for older people, they include anyone who might need 24-hour care.
Nursing homes may offer care to people with special needs associated with serious memory problems e.g. dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
They may offer palliative care – which is sometimes known as end of life care – for residents with a life-threatening illness.
There are also nursing homes, which offer around the clock nursing care to patients convalescing from an illness or after surgery.
Many residential homes offer respite care which offers short-term care to enable home carers or family members to have some time off.
Residents usually live in private or shared accommodation. There may be private or shared bathrooms/shower facilities.
There may be structured daily routines, or there might be a more open and flexible regimen.
Families sometimes need to choose a nursing home quickly due to an emergency, and it can be difficult to learn all you need to know in a very short space of time.
Nursing home care can be very expensive because of the personnel and specialized equipment needed to provide good patient care.
For some people the nursing home may be a long-term need for a family member who requires 24 hour care.
It is important to inform yourself as much as possible so that you can access the kind of care that is best for your family situation.
This website aims to give you as much information as possible so that you can weigh the options available to you and feel happy with the choices you have made.
