Are you and your family faced with the decision of placing your loved one in a nursing home? The choice may be one of the most important decisions that you will ever make. In "Choosing a Good Nursing Home," Sherri L. Mitchell offers valuable insight in understanding the questions to ask to properly explore which nursing home can best meet the needs of your loved one.
"Choosing a Good Nursing Home" enables you to see the facility from a different vantage point. It moves beyond the surface appearance of the home and looks at the areas that will aid in making a knowledgeable decision. The book covers topics from what to look for on the initial tour of the facility, to knowing what questions to ask if your loved one is in need of therapy, has dementia, has pressure ulcers (bedsores) or suffers from weight loss. Additionally, Choosing a Good Nursing Home offers substantive information on Medicare and Medicaid eligibility requirements. This book allows you to make a more informed decision as to where to place your loved one, whether the stay will be for short-term rehabilitation or permanent placement.
