Are you or someone you love facing the reality of moving to an extended care nursing home? This thought strikes terror into the hearts of most as, let's face it, nursing homes don't generally have the best reputations. But nursing homes aren't necessarily bad-they are just different. Let me help you choose the facility that best meets your needs, and then give you lots of ways to make the experience the best it can be. As a Registered Nurse I spent years in various facilities, working as a nursing assistant (aide), floor nurse, charge nurse, and Director of Nursing. Outlined in this booklet are lots of tips for enhancing nursing home life on a daily basis, with practical ideas based on real life experiences. Topics include choosing the right facility for you, cleanliness, medications, laundry, bath tubs, family interaction, etc. Let me help you make this next chapter of life the best it can be!
