You can facilitate your loved one’s transition to a nursing home

| Apr 9, 2018 | Nursing Home Neglect

You and your loved one have had many lengthy discussions about his or her wellness and growing need for everyday assistance. However, the decision to begin looking for a nursing home is rarely made without feelings of concern and hesitance. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we are familiar with the risks that residents of nursing homes are subject to and have helped many families in New York to actively protect their loved one’s wellbeing. 

The experience that your family member has in a nursing home can either be completely positive and rewarding, or it can create exponential stress, anxiety and in serious cases, expedite worsening health. While the approach, demeanor and dedication of staff members play an integral role in your loved one’s ability to feel at home, there are also things you can do to encourage your loved one to have a good experience. 

According to Health Central, here are some helpful things you can do to aid in your family member’s transition to assisted living:

  • Schedule regular visits.
  • Be an advocate and help your loved one voice his or her concerns.
  • Assist in moving your family member and helping him or her get settled and acquainted with the facility.
  • Find out about what activities there are for residents and encourage your family member’s participation. 

By playing an active role in your loved one’s move to a nursing home, you may be able to help him or her have a more rewarding experience. For more information about preventing elder neglect, visit our web page.
