The Greatest Gift to Give a Kentucky Nursing Home Resident in 2013
Matthew L. White
The holiday gift-giving season may be over, but if you have a loved one in a Kentucky nursing home, there is one very important gift that you have left to give. That is the gift of protection.
You Can Protect a Loved One Even if You Aren’t Always at the Nursing Home
While you may or may not be able to protect a loved one from nursing home abuse or neglect before it occurs, you do have the resources and the right to protect your loved one if you think that abuse or neglect has occurred. You can help protect your loved one by:
- Regularly visiting the nursing home. Now that the holidays are behind us, it is important not to forget to visit your loved one regularly.
- Keeping in touch with nursing home staff. If you live far away and have returned home after the holidays, make sure that there are a few different staff members with whom you can check in regularly and trust to tell you what is really going on with your loved one.
- Keeping a close relationship with your loved one and encouraging your loved one to tell you what he or she needs.
- Promptly reporting any suspected abuse or neglect.
This gift may not come in a pretty package, but it is one of the most important that you can give a loved one this year.
