your family member to another facility. It is important not to judge the nursing home on the basis of a guided tour or the nice furniture and wallpaper in the
lobby. You must remember that, especially in a for-profit nursing home, they put a lot of effort in marketing to convince you to bring your family member

basic care that your family member will receive. This site
gives you some basic tips to keep in mind when looking for a nursing home.
