We talk quite often about the importance of keeping yourself informed and making a thorough decision when considering a nursing home facility for your loved one.
It’s certainly true that there’s no hard and fast “rules” to abide by, and unfortunately, there’s no “owner’s manual” for what questions to ask and what criteria to use, but on occasion, one comes across a helpful tool.
Anyone looking for such a tool is highly recommended to check out a recent article in the Los Angeles Daily News that discusses the recent changes to Medicare’s updated Nursing Home Compare tool.
For those too busy to sift through each question in the Compare tool, this article rather effectively streamlines much of the information and plucks out a few important and helpful categories and questions — truly a valuable article.
You can contact us here 24/7/365 (and we really mean that as we will answer our phone) if you have anyquestions and to learn how we may be able to help you or your loved one who has been a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect – in particular, you will find that we listen, take your phone calls and e-mails (and even text messages!). We would be honored to help you with your matters – large or small.
