Nursing homes and other residential facilities are often the most appropriate choice for our aging loved ones. While most families in Illinois would like to care for their elderly parents in-home, the time commitment and cost of care is often out of reach.
When elderly individuals lose their ability to move freely, they often depend on other people for their care. You may have an older loved one who lives in a nursing home or assisted care facility due to this and other health issues. Though you certainly hope that the staff at the facility goes far and beyond to ensure the wellbeing of your family member, certain factors may cause concerns.
