Nursing Home Evaluation Form
Use a separate form for each place you visit. Don’t expect every nursing home to score well on every question. The presence or absence of any of these items does not automatically mean a facility is good or bad; each has its strengths and weaknesses. You will notice that they vary considerably in appearance as well as cost. Some resemble luxury hotels and others appear to be more like private homes. Either environment can deliver exceptional care. Focus on what’s important to the resident and you. Record your observations for each question by circling a number and then total up the score. Your ratings will help you compare communities and choose the best one for your situation. But don’t rely simply on the numbers — also ask to speak to family members of other residents.
