What is the best guidance in making the decision to place a loved one in a convalescent or rehabilitation center?
Visit the facility, meet the staff and follow your instincts. Ask your physician and those who have had someone at a facility. They will be able to give you expert advice and first hand experience. Remember though, that everyone looks for different thing and you have to do what is right for you. Consider the size of the facility and the location. Remember too that placement in a convalescent or rehabilitation center is not the last resort. Rather, it is a first choice for proper care and attention.
