Tips for Finding the Right Skilled Nursing Facility for You

Most people know they want a skilled nursing facility with quality medical care. But narrowing down the choices can be overwhelming, and how do you find the one that's right for you? Here are some tips to help:

Find a facility with a proven track record.
Experience and expertise count. Select a skilled nursing facility who don't just say they can offer quality medical care — but they have proven it. Don't be afraid to research and compare multiple facilities, or to ask an individual facility questions like how many patients are readmitted, and what percentage of patients go home within 30 days?

Determine the right location.
Even if you’re tempted to find a facility that is as close as possible to where you live, it’s worth thinking about who your cheerleaders are going to be. If you have friends or family members who are committed to being there for you during your recovery, it may be helpful to look at options that are more convenient for them. 

Visit and bring someone along.
If you have the luxury of being mobile and able to make this decision in person, there’s nothing better than an in-person visit to the facilities on your shortlist. But if you can’t make the trip, make sure you look at the facility website and read reviews to get a thorough understanding of what you can expect. 

Call and ask specific questions.
If you’re like most people, you probably have a few questions about what life is like at a skilled nursing facility, if they can manage specific dietary requirements or if they will be able to address a particular treatment challenge. Calling ahead and speaking to a staff member is a great way to learn more about the services offered.

Educate yourself.
Being well informed is valuable in a number of circumstances, but it’s especially important if you are facing a long-term care situation. Put your mind at ease by looking at resources like the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ long-term care site, or the National Institute of Health’s page, as you begin your search for the skilled nursing facility that’s right for you and your family.
