Have you ever experienced working with someone who is inexperienced? It can be quite frustrating, especially when you’re facing a life decision.

Hundreds of senior care homes open or change ownership or management every year. In amongst the Administrators who operate these properties are the new kids on the block and the veterans of the industry. What should steer your decision? First off, many new homes are wonderful. The staff is motivated to make a difference in the industry, and they’ve truly done their homework to determine how they can raise the bar in senior care. The veterans in the industry know what they can and cannot handle. They’ve likely worked with a wide variety of care needs, and they have a good understanding of the services available to their residents.

So, if you are at a point where selecting a care home for your loved one has become a necessity, how should you choose? If your loved one’s care needs are extensive, it may be better to pursue locations with more experience. Typically newly licensed care providers will shy away from high care cases because they want to get their feet wet first. If your loved one is requiring basic care, than don’t be too quick to write off these newer homes. It is important to visit the locations, meet the Administrator, have them assess your loved one, ask honest questions about how they will be able to meet your loved one’s needs. Communication will go a long way in helping you determine which places are viable options.
