Nervous about sending your loved one to a long-term care facility? Heather Downs, RN and unit manager at Friendship Manor, gives three tips for peace of mind:
- Always tour the facility. Look for cleanliness and teamwork.
- Read reviews or testimonials from those with loved ones in the facility.
- State reviews on a facility are open to the public. Ask to read the state review book or check the facility’s website for posted reviews.
