Tips to pick the best nursing home for a loved one

By May 24, 2012News

ABC News recently released an article to assist people in selecting the correct nursing home for a loved one.

The article lists a handful of rules:

STAY CLOSE

“Once your loved one is in a nursing home, drop by frequently, sometimes without notice.”

GET REFERENCES

“The CMS website provides a tool to help users compare nursing homes.”

CHECK ON STAFFING

“No matter how dedicated individual employees are, if there aren’t enough, care suffers.”

SCOPE IT OUT

“Visit each nursing home you’re considering and take notes.”

CONSIDER COSTS

“To control costs, determine if it’s possible to keep your loved one at home longer through a combination of family help, health aides and adult day care.”

SWEAT THE DETAILS

“Ask about anything that could affect whether your loved one will be happy and well treated.”
