I know a lot of people who work in a nursing home, they have a lot of stories to tell. Mostly they take care of elderly people, feed them, assist and even entertain them. I think that people working in nursing homes should have an intrinsic care for the elders. Treating them like adults and not as someone invalid or very dependent Some of them after all are not too old yet or too sick yet that they cannot take care of themselves.
They should also have a knowledge on the common diseases and disorders of the elderly like Alzheimer's disease, rheumatism, dementia, hypothermia, pneumonia, heart problem and several others.
They should also have a lot of prepared activities for them to keep them occupied. There is music, dancing, art works, yoga, exercises, cooking lessons, painting and acting too.
Usually a nursing home is situated in a large place where there is tranquility and peace. Somewhere close to nature. Somewhere where you can relax and feel at home.
