How Nursing Homes Have Evolved Over Time


 
Business
Today's nursing homes are far more different than they once were. Legislation, modern technology, and advancements in medical science have boosted the experience that retirement communities offer. The assisted care provided is more personalized and geared toward giving seniors more autonomy.

Community Living

Seniors can revel in comfortable, independent living with apartment-style floor plans. Semi-private rooms are no longer the only option. Advanced assistance is also available for residents needing additional attention. The living quarters, halls, and common areas are more spacious than in previous years. This allows those that need wheelchair access the extra room to move around freely. You will notice that today's nursing homes are located on beautiful grounds with gazebos, gardens, and courtyards, giving residents the ability to enjoy sitting outside and socializing with their friends and family.

Health Management

A trained around-the-clock staff is located on-site and is knowledgeable of emergency preparedness. Federal and state laws have changed how long term care facilities are run. Systems are in place for a resident to pull a cord or push a button to receive immediate assistance. Qualified employees can administer medication to those unable to do so on their own. Physical therapy and exercise classes are a part of many facility programs.

Personal Care and Service

Personalized services such as housekeeping and laundry are provided on a daily or weekly basis. If there is not a salon/barber shop on-site, many facilities have a skilled technician for grooming purposes. Assistance with daily activities is available as well. 24-hour supervision is a standard in retirement communities. A lot of consideration goes into ensuring that the residents feel independent while also being monitored. Safety is always the #1 priority.

Dining

Many nursing homes now have elegant, formal dining rooms with tables draped in white cloths. The meals are prepared by skillfully trained chefs who provide a taste of home for the residents. While nutrition is still part of the three daily meals, snacks and special dishes are on the menu too.

Social Activities

Game consoles are very popular in retirement homes. Residents love to take part in friendly competitions using large plasma TV screens. There are library and lounge areas equipped with computers and other Wi-Fi accessories. For those that are unfamiliar with the Internet, many communities teach classes on how to navigate it. Movie nights, wine and cheese socials, and special interest clubs are big hits too. Transportation is provided to take seniors to off-site appointments. It is also available for group outings to local shopping malls, casinos, restaurants, and other attractions. Resident councils are very common. The seniors are given opportunities to have input on activities and voice any concerns.

Genuine engagement, social interaction, and quality care are the norm in present-day nursing homes. These facilities are not just for seniors needing long-term care. They are enriched retirement communities where residents can live comfortably in their golden years.
