We have previously written about what to look for when searching for a good nursing home. The type of home which has enough nurses and aides to provide prompt and timely care to the residents. The type of home which provides proper nutrition and hydration to its residents. The type of home which provides needed physical therapy and regular visits by the Medical Director.
Many people believe that finding the “right” nursing home is a very difficult task. I just read the attached article from a Philadelphia newspaper and he concludes “there is no such thing as a good nursing home. The best you can hope for is to find one of the best homes available and to avoid the many at the middle and bottom of the list.”
