On this site you will find Check Lists from various organizations. Be sure you know what specific services and care your loved one needs. Any of these check lists can help you ask the questions you need answers to; use the one that fits you best. After you have the answers to your questions, you will be better able to make a decision.
Use the Choose Well website to get started. Set up visits with the RCFEs you like. When you are visiting, be sure to use the check list as you walk through the facility. Don't be shy. Ask your own questions so you completely understand how that facility would take care of your family member.
Once you make a placement decision, be sure to visit your loved one often to oversee the care and supervision they are receiving.
