How would you go about choosing a care home for a loved one?It is such a huge decision to make and so much has to be taken into consideration.In the end, I went on gut instinct when I visited. I hate when the term "put into a home" is used, as for many, there is simply no other option. My father needs daily nursing care and the 10 - 15 minute home visits he was receiving from carers just wasn't good enough. He was admitted to hospital with severe pressure sores and dehydration.I would have felt more guilt at leaving him at home in such circumstances. He is now living (as opposed to existing) in a lovely nursing home where he is beautifully cared for and reassured that the staff will help him. He would have lost all dignity if I as his daughter had had to bathe and toilet him. His only concern now is that we had to sell his property to fund his care and I found this part of the process far more complicated than it needs to be especially at such an upsetting time.
