Things to Consider When Selecting a Nursing Home The president of YAM Management, Yosef Meystel heads a growing network of nursing homes in Illinois. Through his position, Yosef Meystel has gained a thorough familiarity with the issues involved in selecting a nursing home.

Things to Consider When Selecting a Nursing Home Deciding to live in a nursing home, or to place a parent or elderly relative in one, is a difficult and often heart-wrenching choice. It is one best made dispassionately, with an eye toward such concerns as cost, the facility’s capabilities and reputation, and its overall suitability for the potential resident. Most referrals, though, are made from hospitals anxious to discharge a patient who no longer needs medical care, but instead rehabilitative or custodial care.

Things to Consider When Selecting a Nursing Home Families considering placing a family member in a nursing home should consider, among other issues , whether or not the home is person centered. To the extent possible, person-centered nursing homes permit residents to set their own schedules with respect to daily activities like eating and going to bed. Most nursing homes, however, have established schedules for many activities, and residents are expected to conform to the schedule. While far more cost efficient than a person-centered approach, such a structured schedule may be upsetting to residents accustomed to a high degree of independence in their daily lives.
