Elder Law of Omaha's Nursing Home Tips

Navigating the path to aging can be difficult. Finding the right assisted living or nursing home can be even more challenging. Here are a few helpful hints that we have found to be tried and true. Comment below to let us know any of yours!

1. Government Websites: Medicare.gov is a great website to find information regarding nursing homes. We suggest to all of our clients that they look for places with 3 stars and above.

2. Seek Expert Help: Denise Craft is an Omaha local that specializes in nursing home placement. If you do not know where to start with your nursing home search, Denise can help pinpoint a location that will meet you or your loved one's needs. Our clients have endorsed Denise Craft again and again. Contact us for her information!

3. Drop by Unannounced: If you are doing facility research on your own we suggest you visit the location without an appointment. Also, we suggest you stop by during a meal time. This way you and your loved one will see what the facility is truly like without them preparing a head of time.

4. Catch more flies with honey than vinegar: The old adage is very true with nursing homes. If you have a problem, remain respectful with the facility staff. They are in charge of you or your loved one's care.
