Choosing a Nursing Home
Choosing a nursing home is not something people want to do. It is a need-driven decision and a daunting one at that. Join Nursing Home Specialist, Emily Rogue, LNHA, and Senior Care Consultant, Michelle Woodbrey on this episode where they discuss what to do and what not to do when choosing a nursing home.
Avoiding nursing home care is among the most commonly expressed wishes of older Americans. After all, nursing homes are clinical settings, just a step below a hospital.
How should you go about choosing a nursing home for long-term care? In this episode, Emily clarifies what a nursing home is and how it differs from other care options. She explains what we can expect from a nursing home when a loved one goes to live there.
We hope to empower people with information and knowledge to prevent going to a nursing home whenever possible. But knowing how to choose a nursing home, based on care performance, can make a huge difference not just in your satisfaction with the care but with your peace of mind as well.
