Looking for the Best Geriatric Home Don’t pick a geriatric home only for today’s needs. Find one that will also be able to meet the elderly person’s needs months and years onward. To do this, there are a few major considerations you need to make. Care Before Aesthetics First off, while a geriatric care home should be neat, fresh-smelling and in perfect order, remember that you are ultimately looking for GOOD CARE, not a hotel-like atmosphere.

Resident-Staff Interaction
A Simple Plan For Investigating Doctors
Observe interactions between residents and staff. Do the residents look happy and satisfied? Sad and withdrawn? Do the caregivers treat the residents as adults or more like kids? If something looks or feels wrong to you, this may be an indication that the home lacks staff or the staff lack an understanding of the elderly’s psycho-social needs. To a huge extent, how the staff treat the residents will affect their quality of life in the home more than anything else. Rental and Patient Agreement Make sure you read the rental contract or patient agreement thoroughly. 41Take it home if needed. Go through the charges and watch out for extra charges. What are included and not included in the care contract? Forget about facilities that do not specify their basic and extra rates in writing. Another very important matter to look into is how long in advance you are required to inform them about moving your loved one out of the home, just in case it’s necessary. Food and Meals Food is usually one of the few pleasures that residents of geriatric homes can enjoy on a regular basis. Bland food or limited food variety can seriously affect the quality of life of an elderly person. State Licensing Inspection Survey No geriatric home will have no violations, but what you need to be wary about are violations directly affecting patient care. On the other hand, if a facility has so many simple or even trivial violations, this can be a sign of potentially bigger problems to come. Director of Nurses There is a Director of Nurses in every geriatric home, and it is important that you speak to him or her before you decide on a certain facility. When you speak to the D.O.N., see if their philosophy of care is agreeable to you, and know how long that person has been working in that position. The D.O.N. is tasked to lay down the standards for care in a facility. If that person is excellent at their job and has the management’s backing (i.e. the Administrator), then care is most probably good. Otherwise, you could be dealing with issues directly involving patient care.
