Finding the Right Nursing Home

Dec 6, 2017 | Nursing Home Abuse

Whether you’re finding a nursing home for your loved one for the first time or transferring them from a facility that failed to meet expectations, you want to make sure your loved one receives the best care possible. Nursing homes with caring and attentive staff and medical professionals can make a huge difference in your loved one’s daily life.

At Stewart & Stewart, an Indiana nursing home abuse lawyer knows that it can be difficult to determine which nursing home is the right place for a loved one. Many may look clean, organized, and well-staffed, but things can quickly change at night or after residents’ families leave. How can you tell if a nursing home is the right place for your loved one? We recommend looking for these signs:

  • An active, engaged, and happy resident population – Afternoons can be a telling time for nursing home facilities. When residents are left to themselves in their rooms, there’s a chance the facility is understaffed or doesn’t have any activities planned to keep residents occupied. Look for nursing homes where residents receive care and attention throughout the day.
  • An energetic and cooperative staff – If you’re touring a potential residence for your loved one, watch the staff carefully. Do they seem energetic and appear to enjoy their jobs? Are they communicating and cooperating with each other and the residents? High turnover rates and job dissatisfaction are major warning signs for nursing home abuse and neglect.

After you’ve chosen a nursing home, be sure to check in frequently to make sure your loved one is still receiving the care and attention that was promised when they moved in. And if you find out that the nursing home facility has failed to meet expectations, you may be eligible to file a claim. Call today for a free consultation, and let us evaluate your case.
