Considering a Nursing Home
| If you are researching or beginning
on long-term care -nursing home care- for someone you love, there are
several concerns and questions to ask about the care facility that you
usually don't find in a nursing home brochure, orientation material or
even a walk-thru. These are nursing home questions you may not think
of if you do not have experience in choosing a nursing home. This page
is not intended to cover material usually found in a nursing home brochure
or typical promotional material. Consider this an independent review of
nursing home services.
This page was written from personal experience with major metropolitan nursing homes considered to have good standards and services. I am not a health care professional. I am not an expert on aging. I am a person who has already been there and done that with parents. You will likely get many standard answers and information on nursing home care, but as with many things, there are a lot of unanswered questions about nursing homes that you won't know to ask about until you actually experience having someone you love in a nursing home.
From time to time I will update this page with new questions and comments about nursing home care and questions about elder care.
