When To Consider A Nursing Home

 

Caregivers, don’t forget about adapting your homes for fall prevention.  

Remember falling down with injuries is the number one reason for nursing home admission.  If you intend to age in place, you must be willing to help your parents or loved ones modify and adapt the home.  This can be done inexpensively.  

In addition, knowing when mom or dad can no longer live at home or be cared for at home is another discussion.  We have many other options today. Either way, we need nursing homes, in my case, my mom wants it to be the absolute last resort when I can no longer care for her.
