How do you tell if a nursing home is safe?

You are not alone if you had to make a quick decision about residential care. Many New Mexico residents rush into choosing nursing homes as a direct result of an elderly family member's injury or medical condition. If you did not have enough time to fully vet each option before you made your decision, it could be time to review the situation.

Making sure your senior loved one stays warm

When it comes to cold weather, the nursing home staff that takes care of your loved one in New Mexico should pay close attention to your relative’s ability to stay warm. According to the National Institutes of Health website, sicknesses or medical conditions can negatively affect a senior citizen’s ability to maintain proper body heat. So whatever ails your relative may also make it harder for your loved one to keep warm.

The impacts of elder abuse and neglect

If you have an aging relative in New Mexico who needs more care than you can adequately provide to them at home, you might end up making the decision to move them into a facility where they can receive the support they need. By design, nursing homes should be places where elderly persons can be safe and cared for in a dignified and compassionate manner. Sadly, these facilities can at times be the very places in which people experience serious abuse or neglect.
