Absolute Truth About Rehabilitation And Care Centers And Nursing Homes Have you ever really wondered what it is like to live inside of a nursing home? Have you considered it? Are you considering it now? Are you one of those people whose family is asking you to consider going into a nursing home? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then you have come to the right place. Right here, right now, you are going to get answers. Yes. I will give you answers to the questions you have asked or might have asked, any questions you have about nursing homes, living in nursing homes, visiting nursing homes and even yes, even observing in nursing homes. Since this is such a broad topic, I will give the answers in a series of articles, not in this one article. This one article will be just the beginning of a series. So, settle down, get a piece of paper or a notebook handy so that you can make notes about things that interest you, and you will be all set to read the rest of the article. First, a word of advice. If you feel this is going to be helpful to you, and I promise it will, put this article in your favorites or email it to yourself and email it to your family. This way, even if you lose the website or if your computer crashes, you will be able to go to your favorites and read it again and again and email it to others again. Later on in the month, I will come back to this article and actually put a link in here that will help you find this article and more related articles about health care and health care services. Now, to begin. Say you want to visit a nursing home and just check it out --not stay, but just observe the home and see what it is like. Now that the parts of the nursing home that the person will show you will be the BEST parts of the nursing home, not the worst parts of it. If you need an appointment to get a tour of the place, then that should be a red flag. You should be able to see a nursing home as soon as possible, not to make an appointment to see it. After all, you just want to look, that is all. And what time can looking take? So, first, you make your appointment if you have to. Ask others if they have been there or if they have lived there and ask their direct opinion about the place. Usually you will get honest answers. But beware of this. MOST employees, staff or private contractors that work inside or that volunteer inside of the place, most of them will give positive reports. Think about it. They are employed there and they have something, everything to lose if they say anything bad about the place. If they tell you that they have relatives in there and they are being treated fairly and good, know that the relatives of staff, of course, receive better and best treatment, so much more than the other residents receive. And if you think this is not true, then you are dreaming. It is a fact, that if a relative works in the nursing home where you are, you will or might receive more attention, better treatment. It just makes sense. But even then, depending on the place, you can still receive bad treatment inside of nursing homes that are not run properly. So, you visit and you observe and you take everything with a grain of salt. What you need is the real honest opinions, thoughts and observations of those that have been inside of these places , for hours, days and even weeks, and then you will truly get an honest opinion. CATCH? You need this person to be not affiliated, not working and not volunteering there at the place. This is why you have come to the right place here. I am not affiliated, not employed, not a volunteer with any nursing home or rehabilitation and care center, though I have spent many long hours, days, weeks and even months inside these places visiting, and observing, making mental notes about treatments and about what I saw inside there. So, you have a first hand report of what it is like to live inside of a nursing home or inside of a bad rehabilitation and care center. Not only do I have that experience but I have the notes and emails and other thorough input from readers of my articles and from readers and authors of other books about nursing homes. So this is a good base for the series of these articles. In my next article, I will give you a total inside look of your first day inside the home and we will progress from there.
