I am placing my mother in memory care and doing all of this alone. I would like to know how I can get the state inspection and Medicare ratings for facilities. Also, what other type of questions besides what is obvious should I be asking and looking for? I know when touring, they guide you essentially but what don't they just come out and say that I need to know. Your advice is very much appreciated, thank you in advance!
Just saw this. The results of previous inspections are required to be in plain view on the walls of every nursing home or facility
My thoughts are with you and I wish you the strength.
I found out just today that you can ask the care facility for the state ratings and they have to provide it. I asked the facilities that I narrowed down to and received it right away.
I'm also moving my Mom into memory care in the next couple weeks. Excruciating experience. Sadness, guilt, fear, etc. One question is caregivers to residents ratio. The one we are looking at is one caregiver to eight residents. I don't know if that is good, I need to research it. Good idea about ratings, I didn't think of that. Mom's in Montana so I'll look for websites. I am dreading the actual move, not sure how we'll do it or how it will go. We aren't going to tell her....:0
Oh @bobbiekay08, thank you very much for that. This is the hardest thing I've had to do in my life. Bless your heart and your family 💜
Carla, I agonized over what to do and how to do. James’s stepdaughter works at the facility I have placed him in. The facility takes me about 40 minutes to get there on good days. I think All of the facilities are about the same. I just prayed and asked God to give me peace over everything. We as caregivers can only do so much.....I’m praying you get peace over your decision bc no place will be fully as we wish....hang in there!
