Nursing Home Design

Nursing homes are designed to serve usually elderly patients who require long-term, therapeutic and preventive care. Residents normally have non-acute medical conditions and are frail but not bedridden. They may need canes or walkers to help them get around and aid with everyday tasks such as eating, dressing and washing. Most nursing home residents will stay for the remaining months or years of their life, which is why the design of the home is so important.
