Key Signs That It Is Time for Nursing Home Care
Deciding if it’s time for you or your loved one to receive additional care in day-to-day tasks or with medical needs can be a hard decision. There are some key signs you can look for to indicate that home nursing care might be beneficial. They include the following:
- If more medical attention is required. If 24-hour supervision is needed or if the individual requires assistance throughout the night, and their current living situation doesn’t offer that.
- If the individual isn’t mobile or has lost some mobility. Some signs of mobility difficulties include:
- Not showing up for scheduled appointments or social activities
- Impaired used of transportation
- Inability to clean or tidy home
- Inability or difficulties transferring from a bed or seated position
- Mail and packages stack up in mail box or outside home

- Unexplained weight loss
- Lack of appetite
- Unable to eat solid foods
- No food in their home
- Skipping regular meals
- Storing or preparing food in unsafe ways

- Feeding themselves

Many specialists are on-site at nursing homes. Even at-home nursing care can provide the individual with transportation and mobility help to these appointments.
Skilled Nursing Facility Services
Some nursing services require a more specialized skill set. Individuals who would do well in these more specialized nursing facilities are individuals who need 24/7 care or help with daily tasks such as bathing. If you or a loved one is on a respirator, require regular and frequent therapy, or are recovering for a major surgery, these facilities can help. At Enriched Life Home Care Services, we are staffed 24/7 with expert staff, and we provide many services.

Nursing Homes vs. Assisted Living
When an individual can still live on their own, but needs assistance with certain tasks or items, assisted living could be the perfect option. Assisted living provides the freedom of living independently while still providing assistance in specific areas.
Assisted living facilities provide custodial care for individuals who may need assistance with food preparation or housekeeping tasks. These facilities provide little to no medical assistance. They may help with medication reminders. Assisted living facilities provide individuals with private or semi-private living spaces with a bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. These facilities offer more freedoms with limited responsibilities. Individuals have the freedom to own pets, consume alcohol, and have guests without having to worry about the responsibilities of lawn care, cooking, or cleaning. These facilities also tend to be less expensive, but don’t accept Medicare or Medicaid.
Nursing homes, on the other hand, provide ample medical services and supervision. Nursing care is a great option for individuals who have medical needs and need full-time care. This is also a great option for individuals who may feel lost or are prone to wandering. Assisted living may be a poor option for those who wander.
Nursing Homes vs. Home Health Care
In-home nursing care or home health care is a great option for individuals who can mostly take care of themselves or their home. It is also a great option for individuals who want to remain in their home with their independence as long as possible. There are two types of home care.
There is home care that provides no medical assistance, similar to the care that is provided at assisted living facilities. Home care including housekeeping, cooking, and home maintenance. Home health care, on the other hand, is medical assistance received at home. At Enriched Life Home Care Services, our home care workers and caregivers are specifically trained to provide custodial help to maintain a safe living environment and assist with specific needs. Home care is a cheaper option than home nursing care because it doesn’t include any medical services.
Home health care or in-home nursing care offers all of the same services that home care does, with medical assistance. This is a wonderful option for individuals who want to keep their independence, but may have a medical condition or injury that causes them to need medical assistance each day or a few days out of the week. This is a great short-term care option for individuals who need to recover from an injury or surgery.
