Well I been trading that done magical way nursing homes are trying to go less medical and home like with communities. I truly disagree with this for a variety of reasons.
1. With all the hospital like medical facility regulations this would be nearly impossible.
2. With an industry that's going broke and struggling, how can they possibly afford to transfer to this kind of layout, and cut there resident census.
3. A Nursing home today is a Skilled Nursing and Rehab facility. Too many many residents its not a home, it's a medical resedential facility, that many residents they there 3 months of rehab and nursing and go home today.
4. There might be 10-15 residents in the whole faculty who can walk, talk, and perform total care on themselves and don't really need to be there. The other 90 plus or either vegetative tube feeders, or far along dementia residents.
In my opinion it's time we separate Assisted Living Facilities from Nursing Facilities, and save Nursing Homes aka Skilled Nursing Facilities for residents for residents who really have te medical need. And I also think the federal programs should start participating in assigned living and home care for the people with the minimal custodial need.
I'm. Not saying because sow ones a bed bound tube feeder, or lost with dementia, doesn't deserve a nice home like environment but we really have to take care of necessities first. Right now the quality of care is so poor in LTC all money needs to go towards hiring more frontline care staff to help our overwhelmed caregivers (Nurses and Aides) . I think before facilities would even think about spending 100,000 of thousands on remodeling they could have 3 Aides on a hall of 30 resided a rather than 2. Or Have 1 Nurse per ball instead of one Nurse handling two halls of 30 plus. It can only be improved by improving the quirky of the frontline l. Not by looks of the building And fancy chandeliers
