Choosing a nursing home for a loved one can be a difficult process. You want a nursing home where your loved one will not just be comfortable, but also safe and well cared for. Choosing a nursing home where he or she will be all of these things is not easy. Unfortunately, in some instances, elders are mistreated, abused and neglected in some of Indiana’s elder care facilities.
If you are currently looking for a nursing home for your loved one, ask yourself these questions and analyze the answers before you make a decision:
- Does the facility meet safety standards? A hygienic and healthy environment is key to keeping your loved one secure. Look around the facility, and check if it looks clean and well maintained. Does it smell clean, or does it smell musty or stale? Overall, does the facility have a healthy, friendly and appealing environment that will make a resident feel at home?
