Long Term Care Decisions- Seniors Long Term Care & Nursing Home Issues - SeniorSite.com Preparing Yourself

If you have chosen a facility to meet your short-term or long-term needs, you might understandably have some apprehension about entering the facility, despite having done your research. Nursing homes have resources available to you to help you adjust on both a physical and emotional level. Social workers, admissions staff, psychological support services staff, and Resident Council members are generally available to help you make the transition or for general support. If you feel you need to talk openly with someone, do not hesitate to ask the facility about access to these services.

I recognize that this is a difficult time for both you and your loved one. Many factors come into play and entire lives can be disrupted. If this is a short term stay, it may be merely a matter of discussing the patient's care needs. If this is anticipated to be a long-term placement, you have to recognize the individuality of the situation.

To the greatest extent possible, potential residents should be involved in the decision-making process. Cognitive ability, emotional history, current state of mind, and physical status may impact on their ability to take part in the selection process. Be honest, be forthright and, most of all, be supportive.

What to Bring

I suggest you bring the following:

Clothing that is comfortable and does not require dry-cleaning and preserves the resident's dignity and right to choice in what he/she wears
Photographs and memorabilia
Personal effects such as makeup and hygiene products
Eyeglasses, dentures, hearing aids, and prosthetic devices

I suggest you do not bring (without checking with the facility):

Personal furniture
Electrical equipment
Personal medications
Alcohol
Food and snacks
Refrigerator

Check with the facility for its policy on the following:

Smoking
Labeling clothing
Telephone, television, and computer access
Storage and security of personal items.
