There are times when you need to find the community and support a nursing home provides for a loved one. After all, having trained professionals to make sure that your loved one does not miss medications, gets regular meals, and has a lower risk of falling without receiving assistance provides you with valuable peace of mind. This decision is never made lightly and makes any type of nursing home abuse all the more devastating.
There are a number of vital factors to consider in making the decision whether your nursing home meets your loved one’s needs or not. Initial considerations include visiting policies, patient-to-staff ratio and location. Helpful assessments include:
- Daily activities
- Cleanliness and appearance of the residents and facility itself
- Sleeping layout and accommodation
- Staff friendliness
- Dining facilities and nutrition
- Healthcare availability
- Overall facility efficiency
