Finding the ideal nursing home

There are many aspects to long-term care planning that you want to consider in New York, but one of the most important things that you can do is to find the perfect nursing home. If you do this in advance, you ensure that you live somewhere that you feel safe and comfortable, rather than hoping that your children find a good place if you are unable to do so later on in life.

One key factor to consider is where the nursing home is located. If you want to be close to family, it may be worth it to sacrifice a few other options -- like extra entertainment or larger rooms -- in order to be near to where your family lives. Start with the geographical location and then branch out from there.

Another important thing to look at is the reputation that the nursing home has built up. Look for complaints. Read reviews. Talk to family members of people who have lived there. If a nursing home provides above-average care, word is going to get out -- and the same is true if it provides poor care.

Finally, be sure to look into the financial side of things. Find out exactly what it costs per month and what that gets you. Is food included? Do they have different packages if you want to cook for yourself? Are there discounts if you are a veteran? Make sure you read the fine print so you get a home you can really afford for as long as you need it.

  • I wanted to write to say how pleased my wife and I were at your professional handling of our estate planning and preparation of new wills. We were put at ease by your visit to our home for an interview and were pleased that you listened to us and captured the things that we felt were important.

  • In order to finalize the documents we came to your office and were greeted in a very professional manner and we could not have asked for finer service. We left with copies of everything we needed and feel very confident our needs have been met. Thanks again. We will surely recommend you should the opportunity arise.

  • I have been working with Weinstein & Randisi for about two years now. Elizabeth Randisi, through a very thorough process, has helped my wife and me determine what is really important in our lives. Thus, we were able to draft a living will that reflected our most important values regarding our estate.

  • I would like to give a testimony for Elizabeth Randisi, an estate attorney with Weinstein & Randisi. Her knowledge of wills and estate planning was clearly demonstrated in her presentation to us. Realizing our need for a will, my husband and I went to see Elizabeth.

  • Filing for Medicaid is never an easy or fun process. However, working with the Weinstein & Randisi firm made the process simple and streamlined. We were able to obtain all files and records regarding Medicaid enrollment within a few days using specially prepared checklists and verbiage recommended by our assigned paralegal.
