Selecting the aged care home ...
If selecting the right aged care home simply involved just browsing an online
aged care directory or reading glossy brochures !
Common sense must tell you otherwise.
The truth is that a complete assessment of quality care, accommodation,
and lifestyle services provided by any aged care home requires proper research
and time-consuming tasks that must go well beyond looking at well chosen
images and marketing content provided by aged care providers.
What would the marketing group know about levels of care anyway?
Making sure that you make the best decision can sometimes be overwhelming.
What is the quality of care provided? Are the care staff only "task
orientated" or do they go that extra step to ensure that residents
enjoy a quality experience ?Are there worthwhile activity programs established?
Is the aged care home within the family budget? Do you take a vacancy just
because it is there - or will you regret the hasty decision?
There are a large number of factors to consider, so choosing the right aged
care home for your family can become a daunting task for a beginner.
