That is why it is always worth doing as much research as possible before you make a final decision.
To begin, have a look at the aged care options available and draw up a list of aged care homes or independent retirement communities close enough for family to visit. You should also consider how much attention or care your loved one will need. As they age will they require help with their medication, bathing, dressing and eating? This will determine the type of accommodation you choose. You will want to find somewhere that has an excellent reputation for their care workers and nurses.
Do not be afraid to speak to people that have loved ones at the communities you are considering. Find out what their experiences are of the elderly care services that are provided. You should also take the time to speak to the nurses or aged care workers who work on site. Watch how they interact with your loved one.
Working as a care worker within elderly care services and aged care communities takes a certain type of person. They must be patient, kind, caring and be prepared for anything. Working as a nurse is more of a vocation, rather than a job. It is important to make sure you find the right team to look after your loved one.
