About Nursing Homes
Choosing from among local nursing homes can be difficult, especially when it comes to caring for a loved one. The process can be even more confusing when an emergency dictates that the decision be made quickly. In order to choose from the local nursing homes that are available, considerations should be made based on what works for your needs and those of your loved one. Touring local nursing homes will allow you to see the environment and accommodations for the residents. Are they tastefully designed and appointed to meet the residents' needs? Do they offer services for those who want to remain independent such as dressing, grooming, medication monitoring, or meal preparation? What programs do the different local nursing homes offer to promote dignity for each resident and encourage social involvement? When making choices amongst the local nursing homes; dont forget to consider the rooms size and cost. Does the home offer a choice of sizes and the option of private or companion suites to make the rent more affordable? Are meals included? Do licensed professionals monitor and supervise the residents along with their medications? What happens in the event of a medical emergency? Activities and social opportunities are also important to the everyday life of the residents in local nursing homes. Does the staff ensure that the residents remain active and encouraged by providing physical and mental stimulation on a daily basis? Are residents encouraged to participate in scheduled activities, meaningful entertainment and trips? What about spirituality at the local nursing homes? Are those needs being met and which ways?

Is the construction new or updated and does its environment seem conducive to well being? Does it feel like a home? What about safety features such as wheelchair accessibility, non-skid floors, and safety bars in the bathroom? Are the local nursing homes equipped with doors alarms? Are there smoke detectors or fire sprinkler systems? Are they regularly inspected? What about landscaping? Are there pleasant sitting and garden areas? Or walking paths for those who are mobile? Some other options to consider amongst local nursing homes are: Can a specific diet be provided if ordered by a physician? What about housekeeping services? Are they included? Is transportation available for your loved one to get to medical appointments? Are the residents monitored 24 hours a day and by qualified personnel? Do residents have access to beauty services? How do the residents receive prescriptions? Does a pharmacy deliver? Perhaps one of the best ways to choose from local nursing homes is to make an unannounced visit. Do they welcome your visit and give a complimentary meal or tour? Are you surprised at the gracious atmosphere you encounter or do you feel rejected? After all, this is supposed to be a home for you and your loved one. If you feel welcomed and comfortable than odds are that your loved one will too.
