Use our free guide to find nursing homes in all 50 states. Locating nursing homes and senior living facilities in your local area is the first step. The second step is to schedule tours of the homes that you are interested in viewing. Remember to bring a list of questions to ask the facility administrator during your visit. Make sure that the facility is licensed by the State Health Care Association or the appropriate regulatory organization in your particular state.

Different nursing homes provide various services and amenities and should be compared closely to find the best option for you or your loved one. You can often find nursing home ratings and detailed comparisons available online. These are usually compiled according to consumer data and are designed to provide prospective customers with an un-biased idea of other people’s experiences with particular nursing homes.

If the future nursing home resident has a serious health condition such as Alzheimer’s or dementia it might be wise to narrow down your nursing home search to facilities that cater to patients with the same diseases and/or conditions. This will ensure that the resident is receiving specific attention and treatments geared towards their ailments. The resident will also benefit by having staff members on-site who are trained and experienced in caring for patients with their disease or condition. Interested persons can contact a facility directly to inquire about what types of specialized care they offer (if any).
