Jane E. Brody, a Journalist on health and aging for The New York Times, recently published a post on what you should do when placing a loved one in a nursing home.

  • Start with the cost
  • Is the home in a convenient location?
  • Check out the government’s report card for chosen homes
  • Research what specialized services the patient might need
  • What languages are spoken?
  • Take a tour; don’t rely on brochures
  • Observe how patients are treated by staff members
