Finding the Best Care Home for your Loved One
When faced with finding a care home or nursing home for yourself or a family member, the choice can be overwhelming. Deciding where to live is not to be taken lightly, and there are some key factors to consider when viewing potential homes.
The most important thing when choosing somewhere to live is that you, or your relative, feel safe living there. The building itself, and any equipment within it, should be well maintained, and there should always be enough staff on duty to perform the required duties.
Caring Care Homes
A good home is one that truly cares about its residents. It should be free of discrimination or prejudice, and all residents should feel welcome. There should be regular staff training regarding equality, diversity and inclusion. On your visit, you should see all residents being treated with respect and in a dignified manner.
During your time in a care home, your needs may begin to change and staff should be responsive to these changes. During your visit, ask the staff how they monitor and adapt to a resident’s changing requirements.
