Finding the right nursing home for your loved one is crucial to their overall wellbeing. You need to find one that can guarantee their comfort and security, can provide the proper care, and have credible staff.

Here are helpful steps to do in choosing a nursing home suggested by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Step 1

Gather information about different facilities and invest time to pay a visit.

When visiting, be sure to ask critical questions to ensure the facility’s credibility. Ask about their health care and services, about their staff, accommodations, and about their payment policies,

Step 3

Tour each nursing home, and survey the area and the environment. It is also helpful to ask the residents about their experience with the facility’s staff when possible.

Step 4

Narrow your choices and select at least three nursing homes you think are good and re-visit them. Conduct a more thorough survey and meet with the administrators.
