Four Important Factors When Choosing a Nursing Home in Henderson

Making the decision to go into a skilled nursing facility or to place a close family member into such a facility is never easy. Often, it is the best option for both the caretakers and the person for whom they are caring. Once the family reaches that difficult decision, the next step is to choose a nursing home that will fit the person's short-term and long-term needs.

 

What to Look for in a Nursing Home

Here are four factors to think about if you are looking for a nursing home in Henderson, NV:

  • Location is important for both the facility's residents and their families. For the residents, the best location is one close to shopping, entertainment, and banking. This allows them to remain as active as possible and in control of their day-to-day activities. Such a convenient location makes it possible for the residents' families to visit frequently and to take small trips outside the facility.
  • Atmosphere is extremely critical for both long-term residents and short-term patients. Nursing homes have a bad reputation for being sterile environments. You need a facility that feels like an extension of home. Bright open rooms with plenty of space to gather and meet. The building should have plenty of outdoor spaces for patients to get outside and enjoy the sun.
  • Qualifications of staff are paramount when it comes to a skilled nursing facility. Nursing care should always be under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. A physician should direct all physical therapy services and treatments done within the facility. It is important for the facility to have a registered dietitian directing the food service. On-site staff should always work with the resident's own physician on specific therapies and treatments provided within the facility.
  • Activities are what make day-to-day life enjoyable. The facility should have a full calendar of activities with appeal to a variety of residents. They should include outings to local stores or restaurants. There should be plenty of in-facility activities including social gatherings, movie nights, religious services, and games. Group exercise offers the opportunity for residents to enhance their physical health while socializing with other residents.
