Choosing a Care Facility? Listen To Your Gut

People often ask what to look for when choosing an assisted living facility or a nursing home for a loved one. There are grading sites such as the Medicare Nursing Home Guide, found on Medicare.gov, and I suggest you use them. However, there are many things that go into good care that can’t be measured on a chart. In order to see the heart of a facility, you need to spend some time there. Observe routines and pay attention to the atmosphere. What is your gut feeling about the place?

When you have a full-time job or children to care for, taking on the role of caregiver for a loved one can sometimes be a huge commitment to bear. In these situations, everyone wants what is best for the people that they care about most and after weighing the options, sometimes care facilities are the best solution in these cases. This is where Catholic Health Services can help ease your stress.
