The selection of nursing home care for a loved one or friend is often a difficult task. To do the job right, you must be prepared for the time-consuming effort of gathering the many facts needed to help in the decision-making process.

Finding the right facility is all-important to a loved one's well-being. The facility selected will be the person's home and community sometimes for the remainder of the person's life. However, through rehabilitative efforts, nearly one-half of the patients of a proficient nursing home can be discharged to live independently once again.
