Find the Best Long Term Care Facility for Your Loved One
Last month was Elder Abuse Awareness Month, where this global issue became a focus. We follow this month with an article on finding a good long term care facility. Placing a loved in a long-term care facility is often one of the hardest decisions a family must make. As our population has aged, the number and type of these facilities has increased to accommodate the need. There are active adult communities, assisted living centers, special care units (aka “Alzheimer’s Units”), nursing care facilities, and specialized options for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. Also available are progressive care campuses that offer residents a continuum from independent living through full nursing care.
The search to find the “best” or “right” facility can be confusing and stressful. The challenges are compounded when a sudden health issue requires a quick decision. Not all long-term care facilities are created equal, and you want your loved one to have the best care possible. Click here to read 14 things to consider and some resources available here in North Carolina to help you make your decision.
