Sometimes the choices you make on behalf of an elderly loved one work out, and sometimes they go horribly wrong. You more than likely spent a considerable amount of time locating a nursing home or assisted living center that you felt would treat your aging family member with the same care you would, but when you visit, something seems amiss.
One of the most emotional decisions you will make in your lifetime is placing your elderly parent in a nursing home. Choosing a nursing home that fits your parent's needs can be an overwhelming decision. Will he or she be happy there? Will the staff take good care of them? After researching what to look for in a nursing home, you make the decision and feel comfortable with it. You put your faith and trust in the nursing home and staff to have your parent's best interests at heart.
