The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
Nursing homes have staff geared towards medical care. Some though, have volunteers that play music, sing, etc.
Both usually have an activity director that plan activities such as arts and crafts, gardening, bingo, etc. Both have religious services.
Years ago one of the requirements for ALF was that the elder could transition themselves from wheelchair to commode or bed They had to have at least that level of mobility and be able to respond to a fire alarm. I was trying to get my inlaws into one after an evacuation and was given this info as a basic requirement.
She doesn't even want to go to a nursing home. Thank you
1 staff to 10-11 residents. Small homes (Care, Nursing, etc) 2 staff for 6 residents.
As my sister's dementia and physical needs increased, moving her to 6 bed home
was epic. This became her "home"...not "apartment." Less stimulation from a large facility brought a peaceful calmness. Her daily routines created harmony in her life. We got very lucky,
I have visited one before to take my HHA certification and I noticed how the rooms are like apartments. Not realizing the other differences.
Thank you for your response and the information.
Nursing homes provide dealing with medical requirements as well.
