An important step in selecting a nursing home is taking a tour of the facility. A tour is a great opportunity to see everything the home has to offer and determine if it meets your needs. To help prepare our users, WheretoFindCare.com has compiled a list of tips for conducting a tour:
1. Ask to see the latest inspection report. If any corrections needed to be made, ask if they have been made and what was done to correct them.
2. Interview patients, family, and staff. Ask how satisfied they are with the nursing home.
3. Inquire about languages. Communication with a patient is important. Ask what the primary spoken language is and if any other languages can be accommodated, for example sign language.
