One of the biggest decisions a family must make is whether or not to put an elder family member in a nursing home or assisted living facility. However, with recent reports detailing elder abuse and nursing home negligence, the process of choosing a nursing home can be a fearful experience. When investigating a nursing home for elder care, be sure to ask as many questions as you need to feel comfortable. Ask about medical care (both nurses and doctors), feeding schedules, activities and accommodations (what are the rooms like?). If you feel uncomfortable in any way during this first visit, consider another home. Remember, a nursing home will be taking daily care of your loved one for the rest of his or her life.
