Being a supportive caregiver to a family member in a nursing home

When you collaborate with other family members to decide how to best care for an aging loved one in New York, chances are each of you spend considerable time weighing your options for the most comfortable and compassionate care. When you settle on a nursing home as your best option, transitioning your loved one into that environment will take time and encouragement on your part. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped many families protect their loved ones against elder abuse. 

Depending on the independence and mental health of your loved one, you may consider having his or her input as you decide which nursing home is the best fit for individual preferences and needs. According to AARP, one of the most important things that you and your family should remember is that even though professional services are taking over much of the caregiving responsibilities, your caregiving is still required and an absolute necessity. Your loved one will need your support, involvement and commitment to remaining an integral part of their caregiving experience. 

It is also essential that you be careful about the promises you make to your loved one. If you plan to visit your loved one regularly, be realistic about how often you will be able to come. When you make a promise, stick with your word and make sure you show up when you say you will. Your vigilance may help to protect your loved one against the abuse and neglect that sometimes occurs in nursing home facilities. 

If you are in the process of helping your loved one transition into a nursing home, understanding how to facilitate this change and remain a supportive and loving family member is critical to making his or her experience the best it can be.
