What should I think about when moving a loved one into a long term care setting?
Making the move to a long term care setting can be one of the most difficult decisions you make. To help you and your family member get acquainted with the center, make sure you discuss these items with the healthcare providers so they can help make the transition as smooth as possible. What are the patient’s diet likes and dislikes? How mobile is he or she? How much can he or she manage personal care and hygiene? What are his or her current living conditions like, and do they provide the necessary support? What role does religion play in their life? What are his or her routines and habits, as well as hobbies? What about mental capacity? Do they fear new surroundings? Does he or she socialize easily?
Visiting my loved one at a long term care center is difficult. How can I make it more enjoyable and fulfilling for both of us?
Visitors are very important to residents, and a well-planned visit can be rewarding for both of you. When visiting a loved one, talk to the staff about the best times. If you are bringing children, coach them on what to expect, and plan an activity such as working on a photo album, writing letters, playing a game or eating a meal together. If your loved one can manage, plan an activity outside of the center. Check with the center on its policy with bringing pets to visit the community.
