Move to a Nursing Home?

What is your criteria for when a person should consider a move to the nursing home?

Shiela in Michigan, 49


The criteria to move to a nursing home are as diverse as the individuals who have to make that decision.  A nursing facility needs to be considered when an elder loved one is unable to take care of themselves in their activities of daily living (ADLs).  A nursing home can also be a practical option when other attempts to safely maintain your elder loved one at home have been exhausted.  I’m talking about part-time or full-time help and/or the assistance of family and friends to coordinate essential services.  For some elderly, there comes a time when close medical monitoring which cannot be provided in the home is required. Nursing homes are designed to have the full range of services needed for very frail elderly.
