Armstrong Nursing Homes

Armstrong Nursing Homes - Some decades ago, convalescent homes were a lot more common and popular than they are nowadays. 50 or 60 years ago, it was not uncommon for people besides the elderly to spend time in convalescent homes. Like for example, women who are expecting would often live in a convalescent home during pregnancy and even after giving birth. It was also common for kids with disabilities or special needs to reside in a similar type of facility until they could live close to normal lives. Advances in healthcare technology and medicine have allowed lots of individuals to receive outpatient treatment for their conditions without needing to reside in a home or to manage their conditions. The majority of patients who reside in convalescents homes today are those who have had surgery that requires a longer recovery time or individuals who require long-term medical care for chronic conditions.

Rest homes or nursing homes are not the same as convalescent homes. Although they could offer the same services, convalescent homes differ from both rest or nursing homes. The purpose of convalescent homes is to provide patients with long or short term care to recover from illness, injury, or medical procedures. Convalescent home residents look forward to going back to their own house when they are recovered. Even though the general expectation is that residents will return home after they recover, there are times when they would end up living in a home for the rest of their lives. This usually happens when the patient either cannot appropriately take care of themselves after their recovery or does not completely recover.

Most often, convalescent homes provide a combination of different medical services and staff. Because of the level of help which is usually needed, these types of facilities may be more pricey than standard assisted living facilities. Patients might be able to have some of their expenses covered, depending on their medical insurance plan and possibly even government subsidies. It is vital to do research to find out if any of the expenses could be covered. Meals and other amenities to assist patients in their daily lives during recovery are provided. Social gatherings and activities are normally arranged by employees and friends and family members are encouraged to visit patients on a regular basis, to make the surroundings and recovery process as nice as possible. It is also not uncommon for local charities and religious organizations to visit convalescent homes to offer leisure and assistance.
