5 Questions To Ask Before Moving Into A Nursing Home
What level of certification do you have?
This is a question you can ask about the nursing home itself as well as the staff. Nursing home administrators must be licensed in their state and, while not required, the good ones have additional professional certifications.
What types of care programs do you provide?
It’s a common mistake to assume that all nursing homes are the same. Each resident has unique needs, and depending on your loved one’s needs, even an otherwise great nursing home may not be a good fit.
Are there beds available?
A simple question that shouldn’t be overlooked. Proper levels of staff ensure your loved one gets the individual attention and care they need and deserve.
Are your visiting hours flexible?
Some nursing homes have strict schedules for visitation. Depending on your situation, visiting during the usual hours may be inconvenient. Make sure it’s easy to visit your loved ones when you want to.
May I see a menu?
Finding out what kinds of food are available at the nursing home is important. Especially if you have religious preferences that require certain types of food be made available.
Hopefully, these questions will help streamline the process so you can easily find the best quality nursing home care for your loved ones. Sometimes things go poorly though. And when they get really bad, it’s time to call up a nursing home lawyer in Chicago.
