Information Resources

There are a number of ways to gather information about which center is best for you or a loved one. These include:

Of these, a personal visit is the most useful to help you and your loved one gain an understanding of the center, the staff and the quality of life of the residents. Make sure you visit each facility several times at various times during the day unexpectedly to ensure consistency of quality. Take the time to interact with a variety of different staff members, from the crucial leaders and directors, to the certified nursing assistants, and other frontline workers. This will give you a useful picture of the care that will be received daily. While you’re there ask many questions and be especially observant of the staff’s relationship with the residents. Pay particular attention to the residents to verifying that they are happy and active while having their personal needs met.

Be certain to attend to the physical environment, including such items as cleanliness, organization, odors and food. A detailed checklist of things to look out for can be obtained here. Take the document with you as you make your visits.
