It is best to find out what services each nursing home does provide daily and which they do not. You will want to ask if they always have a doctor on staff. In case of colds or flu or other illness. What type of scheduled activities and diet they offer. And last but not least their safety procedures in case of fire or injury or anything of that sort. It's best to ask every question you can think of, in order to make sure your loved one is well taken care of.
