In this guide, we’ll walk you through some tips for selecting a good nursing home.

What Makes a Good Nursing Home?

The two main attributes you should look for in a nursing home include well-trained staff and high-quality healthcare services. These two factors will play the largest role in your loved one’s wellness.

Make sure to tour any nursing home you’re considering for your loved one. While a website may look great, the actual facility may tell an entirely different story.

When touring facilities, keep an eye out for the following signs that indicate a good nursing home:

  • The staff does not appear stressed or overworked.

  • The residents have access to high-quality food and medicine.

  • The residents have the option to participate in a variety of social activities.

  • The residents are not left alone often.
