It is time to consider alternatives to nursing homes

When the elderly can no longer care for themselves in New York, their children or younger siblings may place them in nursing homes. Ideally, this helps to ensure the elderly receive the care and medical attention they need. Too often does the opposite prove true. Over the past few years, CNN published numerous articles and reports regarding the dismal state of nursing homes in America.

What causes an elderly person to wander?

Older people who suffer from Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia may inexplicitly start wandering about. Their journey could take them anywhere through a home, a building or somewhere outside, which can be very dangerous particularly if they are infirm and unaware of where they truly are. If you have a senior relative who resides in a Bronx nursing home, it is important to know if your loved one has a problem wandering.

How can I find a good nursing home for my aging parent?

It can be hard to watch parents grow older. At some point you may need to look for a Bronx nursing home, which can provide a safe, structured environment for seniors. If you have concerns about finding a good nursing home for your loved one, AARP offers the following tips.

Watch for signs of elder abuse and neglect

As loved ones age and need additional support, it can be difficult to trust that their safety is a top priority for those entrusted to provide care. Their safety and wellbeing is of the utmost importance, which may mean you need to take on the responsibility of watching for potential signs of mistreatment.
