There are also different levels of care, so you should be aware of the type of care your relative requires before you start looking in earnest.

It is essential that you do your research about any nursing home that you are considering. You can get a great deal of very objective information by talking to people you know about nursing homes that they may have experienced. Following on from that visit some of the homes and spend as much time as you can checking out the facility and how the current residents seem to be cared for.

Go the home with a list of questions that you have and ask a variety of staff about them. As well as asking questions make sure you do a great deal of observing how well the residents seem to be cared for, how happy and alert they appear as well as how the staff interact with them and whether the staff look overworked and stressed.
