Advantages and disadvantages of nursing homes
Everyone is faced with the fact that their parents or other relatives are aging. In such a situation, it is necessary to provide their loved ones with comprehensive care, which will significantly improve the quality of their lives. Not everyone is able to look after their elders 24 hours a day, because they have to work hard and deal with other problems. In such a situation, the best solution is to place relatives in nursing homes that provide a full range of specialized services.
Advantages of specialized institutions
Modern nursing homes represent quite different from the institutions that caused horror among residents and visitors. They provide the elderly with a comfortable environment where they can live out their lives in cleanliness, warmth and comfort. Mandatory in nursing homes has its own medical staff, so people of old age in a timely manner will be provided assistance, monitored the progress of the current therapy.
The advantages of specialized institutions include the following:
the pensioner will be under supervision all the time;
In a nursing home, he will be able to find companions, a life partner, so he will constantly be in touch;
the staff holds a variety of activities for pensioners, organizes leisure, allows you to do creative work;
The territory of nursing homes is fenced and under the constant supervision of the guards;
Residents of such facilities can at any time go for a walk, get some fresh air;
Elderly people in retirement homes are well and systematically fed, a balanced menu is developed for them, taking into account the individual characteristics of each resident (for example, the presence of food allergies, the presence of diseases that require compliance with a strict diet, etc.).
What are the disadvantages
Although modern nursing homes are more like boarding houses or sanatoriums, they have several disadvantages:
The residents have to live according to a schedule, especially with regard to meals, because if a pensioner is late for breakfast, he will have to wait for lunch;
several people are placed in the same room, which for some elderly people can be accompanied by certain inconveniences (almost every modern institution has suites, but they charge a high fee);
when a nursing home is heavily populated, the staff may not have time to give proper attention to each resident, which can lead to resentments, misunderstandings, and disagreements.
