On-site visits are key to finding the right Indianapolis nursing home, but where do you start?

One of the most difficult decisions any adult child has to make for an aging parent is considering assisted living. Preparing for that decision may not make things feel much easier in the process, but it really can make the transition smoother for you. Of course, at the forefront of this concern is the quality of the care that your parents will be given.

Not having to rely on regulatory bodies or simply not knowing what goes on in these facilities can cause an unpleasant experience.

This is why the research that goes into finding a nursing home very well may be the most important part of the process you undertake. Angie’s List has more than 75 Indianapolis nursing home facilities listed, and 6 of those have been top rated by our members to help you find the best nursing homes in the Circle City.

Part of the research that goes into finding a nursing home is the legwork of digging up information on each individual facility, but another big part of the process is on-site visits. It’s the only way to really evaluate things with your own eyes and see what the care given is really like.

It’s important to visit more than one facility, as well. Only looking at one nursing home limits the scope of your research and understanding of each individual facility.

With an on-site visit, you can compare the facilities’ respective traits against each other and see which might be a better fit for your parent on their individual merits. Knowing that you did due diligence with Angie’s List and on-site visits can most certainly provide more peace of mind than a hastily reached conclusion.

Take a look at our list of Five Common Nursing Home Complaints to see what residents say are the areas most nursing homes fall short. With this knowledge you can know the right questions to ask when searching for the right Indy nursing home.
