Online resource for information on nursing homes...

If you have ever been faced with the decision of trying to find the right nursing home for a loved one you know how overwhelming it can be to search through the listings of nursing homes and to know exactly what questions you should ask as well as what you should look for. If you live in the United Kingdom, Bettercaring is a great resource for information on both home nursing care and residential nursing homes.

Some of the tips and news articles on their website such as how to spot the early signs of dementia, would be helpful to you no matter where your residence is. I think it's also interesting to compare the types of services that are available in other parts of the world to what is offered here in the US. I found another recent article on what is covered and is not covered in Scotland to also be very interesting as I was under the misconception that it was free.
