Choosing a Nursing Home for your Parents or Grandparents
My parents asked about choosing a nursing home for my grandparents - and this is what I wrote in an email in response:
Mom mentioned that grandpa fell last night and that you are interested in learning more about nursing homes. I think the most important thing is to include grandpa & grandma in the process of choosing a place and to make that decision when they are still able to make it for themselves. I'm sure they have heard stories from friends that will influence where they want to be or where they don't want to be. Just schedule visits to two or three places with them.
