Looking for a nursing home for my mom. What are y'alls thoughts. Heard account payable is very uncooperative and the boss focuses on money rather than the patient. Should I look into other options?

Where do you recommend?? Like to be close to check on her at anytime. But I am worried about the the care and watch when I can not be there. I heard the activies director is great. But the staff and front office is self seeking

You can go here

click on the state, and then the town that's closest to you. The homes are rated according to several different criteria, all based on government requirements.

Buchanan has a nice one, I believe it's called Country side. Also, there is a nicer one in Carrollton. Definitely, do some research. HN&R is close, but there are others.

You want to visit several, and make them surprise visits too, not scheduled ones. Be sure to go around lunch or suppertime, so you can have a meal. You don't want to put your mom in a place that has horrible food, because she won't eat it.

Be sure to use your nose -- a nursing home should never smell like pee. It doesn't matter if the patients are incontinent. There should be sufficient care and CNA's per patient that no one should be sitting in a wet diaper until it begins to smell.
