Follow these steps to choose the right nursing home

It doesn't matter if you're choosing a nursing home for you or a loved one, it's important to make the right decision the first time around. Any mistake can impact you in a variety of ways, such as the treatment you receive and the money you pay.

When creating an estate plan, pay close attention to all details related to elder law. This includes choosing a nursing home, as well as outlining how you'll pay for your stay.

Here are three things you can do to improve the likelihood of choosing the right facility:

  • Make a list of what's most important: Maybe you're most interested in a nursing home that's close to your family and friends. Or maybe cost is at the top of your list. As long as you know what's most important, you can make informed decisions.
  • Ask questions: You can only learn so much about a nursing home by researching online. Take this one step further by visiting every nursing home on your short list and asking the same questions of each one.
  • Talk to others: Ask your friends and family for nursing home recommendations. Find out what they liked and disliked about the facility. A first-hand recommendation is often the best way to make a final decision.

Your estate plan should touch on a variety of elder law-related matters, such as long-term care and Medicaid planning. Once you understand what to include in your estate plan, you can make decisions that give you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.
