The best nursing homes can be incredible places to thrive. However, if the nursing home doesn’t protect your rights, it can become a difficult place to live. At Guardians of Care, LLC, our nursing home patient advocates work passionately to ensure your dignity, comfort, and enjoyment in your chosen nursing home. Thanks to our 24 years of experience, we can spot issues and act quickly to improve any situation.

The term “quality of life” may seem rather nebulous, but we’ve identified key points that we can use to determine whether or not your nursing home is doing right by you. Here is a list:

  • Ability of residents to make choices (self-determination)
  • Resident participation in resident and/or family council
  • Willingness of facility to listen and respond to resident and/or family council
  • Resident participation in activities
  • Accommodation of needs and preferences
  • Practices around room/roommate changes
  • Activity programs meet individual needs
  • Medically related social services
  • Safe/clean/comfortable/homelike environment
  • Effectiveness of housekeeping and maintenance services
  • Clean linens in good condition
  • Adequate and comfortable lighting levels
  • Comfortable and safe temperature levels
  • Comfortable sound levels

Every nursing home is different, but your rights don’t change. At Guardians of Care, LLC, our patient advocates are on a mission to protect those rights and ensure your quality of life. We’re here to reduce nursing home abuse and neglect. Learn more about our services when you contact us today.
