Living at a Nursing Home

Are you or a loved one currently living at a nursing home? Be sure to do the following:

1. Know your rights: Nursing home residents have certain rights and protections under the law but they tend to vary state by state. Stay informed by obtaining a copy of your rights from the nursing home.
2. Stay informed: This is your community. Attend resident/family council meetings. Learn other members concerns and issues. Express your opinions.
...For the entire list, visit: Living at a Nursing Home.

As you know, selecting a nursing home can be a very difficult process. Sharing your experience, whether good or bad, can help others in your community make an informed decision. In addition, providers will gain insight into their strengths and weakness, allowing them to make improvements to their services.

Visitors, patients, and caregivers are encouraged to rate their providers by taking a short survey on The surveys generally take 2-3 minutes to complete. Be sure to include any comments you have about the facility.

In addition, offers the Care Stars program. The Care Stars program is a way to honor employees that have provided us with exceptional care. Tell your CareStar you appreciate them by nominating when completing a survey.
