Nursing Homes in Idaho Defined

A senior family member is likely to consider an Idaho nursing home once he or she requires a higher degree of ongoing medical assistance than offered in a senior’s residence or assisted living center. In a nursing home in Idaho, a registered nurse is available 24-hours a day and this living arrangement is ideally suited for seniors requiring rehabilitative care, such as after an injury or stroke. Nursing home care is available for short-term recovery, as well as offered on a more permanent and long-term basis. Seniors living with chronic health problems that require extensive medication or frequent nursing attention will receive the treatment they require. An Idaho nursing home is similar in some ways to an assisted living center. In both situations, the residents have many opportunities to take part in group activities and daily assistance is provided in areas such as feeding, bathing and dressing. The level of assistance and nursing care offered in a nursing home is much greater, however.
