Choosing a nursing home is a complex process in which family members have to make a very meaningful decision.
First of all, should one evaluate a suitable functional condition: Independent, exhausted, mentally, or nursing?
Secondly, the economic possibility. Whether the frame's financing will be privately or it is necessary to receive funding by the state (depends on the income test).
After understanding the functional definition and how the framework is funded, how do you actually choose the right nursing home? Will the nursing home provide adequate care for your loved ones?
We have assembled a number of highlights that will help in choosing the home of the Patriarchs and separately a number of highlights in the selection of sheltered housing.
In every frame – in every institution, the family is an integral part of the treatment of the elderly and must be alert to any change in the tenant's condition.

Check whether the institution is working according to devices or above standards of the Supervisor Authority (Ministry of Health or the Welfare ministry). Examples
1. Shower in Nursing home-a device is bathing every two days and there are places that bathe every day.

Sometimes, a nursing home seems clean and orderly, but there is an unpleasant odor in the departments, meaning that the occupants themselves are not clean and/or the occupants ' clothes are not clean.
The task types
Are there a variety of activities? Are there any activities in the afternoon? It's a good idea to get there once in a while and see what really takes place.

Not including a doctor – a nurse – cleaning workers.
The alternating therapists
It is common in an institution but must be a regular core therapists which is basically the basis of handling tenants.
