Where is it located? How much does it cost? These are the most common questions asked when choosing a nursing home. Seldom are other questions taken into consideration. Yet, for a major life decision, careful research should be undertaken to ensure that you find the best possible care and the most enjoyable environment for yourself or your loved one.

Making the Right Move has been written both for seniors considering moving into a care facility and for anyone considering housing options for someone he or she loves. This book takes you step-by-step through the process of evaluating different facilities and their staff. The author uses real-life examples she has gathered from her own experiences as a registered nurse to explain what goes on behind the scenes at nursing home and similar facilities.

Packed with checklists of questions to ask and forms for evaluating the answers, Making the Right Move: Housing Options for Seniors is a valuable and practical guide to staying focussed while making what can be difficult decisions. It examines issues including:
  • How to rate a nursing home
  • Supportive housing options with care components
  • Questions to ask the director of care
  • Finding elder-friendly environments
  • How to effectively deal with complaints and problems
Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
