Advocating for your loved one inside of a nursing home

Once you have decided to follow through with putting your loved one inside of a nursing home in New York, you may feel a sense of urgency to continue to protect his or her well-being. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we understand the hesitations that people have when turning the care of their elderly family member over to someone else. 

Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that just because you have decided to enlist the help of a nursing home facility in caring for your family member, does not mean you are relinquishing your rights to protecting him or her. You and the facility you have chosen can function as a team in caring for your family member and providing compassionate care and assistance with day-to-day needs. 

According to AARP, there are several important responsibilities that you can undertake in your effort to stay involved in your family member's care. Remaining a loyal advocate is a way that you can identify if your family member is being mistreated, ignored or abused. Some of the things you can do include the following:

  • Be in regular communication with the facility and with your loved one to check in and see how things are progressing. 
  • Maintain organized records of your loved one's stay at the facility. 
  • Do not be afraid to question staff members if you suspect that something is amiss. 
  • When you are visiting your loved one, be observant of your surroundings and the condition of your loved one's environment and their own personal well-being. 
  • Take an active role in reiterating your support and love for your family member by continuing to be an active presence in his or her life. 

When you are able to continue to play a role in caring for your loved one despite their transition into a nursing home facility, you can remain aware of their needs. For more information about how to prevent nursing home abuse, visit our web page.
