The nursing home you select for your elderly loved one will have a great impact on their health and happiness. You’ll want to tour facilities thoroughly and choose one that has high-quality amenities and services.
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.
