The decision to seek nursing home care for a loved one is often a difficult one. Selecting a home to provide needed care can also be a decision that many people find challenging.
When choosing a nursing home, it's important to get as much information as possible upon which to base the choice. One way to evaluate and compare different facilities is by using a set of questions that can be asked as various nursing homes are considered and visited.
A good starting place might be the checklist included in this section. Using it as a base, you can tailor it to include questions specifically to your loved one and his or her condition and needs.
