Helpful suggestions when considering long term care:
We encourage you to talk with your loved one about their wishes beforehand. This can be a great comfort and help during the decision making process.
Speak to individuals you know who have experienced having a loved one in a long term care nursing home and get their feedback.
Make a list of those residences you wish to consider for placement and visit each one. Look to see if the residents and staff appear happy. Are the residents well groomed and in neat and clean attire? Does the environment appear clean? Are the residents engaged in activities?
