If you have come to the point where you must put your loved one in a nursing home facility, it has probably been a tough decision. With all the news about nursing home neglect and abuse, it can be very scary. Now that the time has come, how do you find the best home for your loved one?
Instead of looking for the best nursing home facility, first place your focus on avoiding a "bad" one. The quality of care is the most important factor in determining a good or bad nursing home. Unfortunately, quality of care usually goes hand-in-hand with the number of staff employed at the home, and sometimes the quality of staff.
