Nursing homes are the perfect option for elderly loved ones who may not receive the constant care and attention they need in their family homes because their relatives are busy at work and/or do not have the knowledge or the resources to provide such intensive care, and so forth.
This is why most working class American families prefer to have their elderly loved ones in a nursing home as a resident where trained faculty members such as nurses and other care givers are always around to give your loved one the best of care and treatment. Doctors are also only a call away in such nursing homes.
Furthermore, since the nursing home will be home to several other nursing home residents too, your elderly loved one will once again be able to enjoy a fulfilling social life.
However, you need to beware of the fact that Indiana ranks as the fifth worst state in the entire country in terms of the quality of care provided for long term nursing home residents. Nursing home abuse is rampant and prevalent throughout the country and Indiana is no exception to say the least. Each year over 40,000 cases of abuse and neglect occur in the state, according to the Office of the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney.
