Look BEYOND the Lobby When Choosing a Nursing Home
Beautiful furniture in the lobby is a nice touch, but don’t lose sight of what’s really important: how the staff treats the residents. A high-end first impression to woo families with inviting couches and eye-catching artwork makes for great eye candy. But, think about it: the only people enjoying the lobby are visitors. What’s going on behind the scenes is far more important.
- How do you see the staff treating people when you tour the nursing home? What is the staff to resident ratio?
- What’s the nursing home’s safety record?
- What do the families of other residents say about the facility?
These are the things to look for and consider. Ask questions and don’t be snowed by first impressions. You know what they say about the fact that you can’t judge a book by its cover. When it comes to choosing the appropriate nursing home or assisted living facility for your loved one, dive into the meat of the book.
