Choosing the Right Nursing Home – from AARP

A still relevant March 19, 2012, article, by author, Cynthia Ramnarace, in the AARP Bulletin, was entitled, “Choosing the Right Nursing Home” (the article is still available online on the AARP website). It stated: “If your loved one is no longer able to safely live on his or her own — whether it’s your mother, your father or your spouse — trusting his care to strangers isn’t easy. How can you be sure that his needs are being met and that he is safe?”



Every Person in a Nursing Home Needs an Advocate

Ramnarace quoted, “Maryglenn Boals, a former nursing home administrator in Arizona”, as having said, “Every person in a nursing home needs an advocate”. Boals stated, “When you are serving that many people, there are going to be mistakes. There is always going to be little things that happen. So every resident needs his own ‘squeaky wheel.”

The majority of the article surrounded important feedback from a “panel of experts and former nursing home workers” who put forth “10 questions to ask to detect signs of improper care.”
