You have a great responsibility. It is time for your parent, or other loved one, to move to a nursing home. You have a lot to consider. You may, for example, consider the level of skilled nursing care, the size of the facility, and the location of the nursing home. You may find a good nursing home for your loved one, at least on paper. However, it does not guarantee that you will find a Kentucky nursing home that is free of abuse and neglect.
Three Things to Do When Searching for a Safe Louisville Nursing Home
When you are searching for a nursing home, consider:
- Talking to others. Friends, relatives, social workers, doctors, and religious groups can provide valuable information on facilities they have used in the past.
- Calling nursing homes. Ask questions and expect kind and thoughtful answers.
- Visit nursing homes and look for well cared for residents and kind interactions between residents and staff. Try to visit at least twice. The first time, set up an appointment with the director for a tour. The second time, show up unannounced so staff can’t prepare for your visit.
Of course, your gut instinct and that of your loved one are also critically important.
