Because it's important to offer guidance to older Americans during pivotal transition periods in their lives, here are several tips for choosing senior care:

- Research which facility is the best fit – Consider specifically how the patient's condition, ongoing treatment needs, and budget will align with local facilities. By using government provided performance data about institutions, patients can evaluate general safety infractions, cleanliness, staffing ratios, over-medication and medication error, overall star ratings and more via

- Make unbiased comparisons based on factual data – Quality of care is the top priority when older Americans are approaching often complicated and emotionally-taxing decisions regarding next steps in residential living. Marketing claims and promises abound, yet potential patients need objective data on which to base their own decisions. Using automated benchmarking engines dedicated exclusively to evaluating these facilities, older Americans can easily find answers to their most poignant questions in plain English, without anyone's opinion influencing their judgements.

- Conduct in-person visits - After determining which facilities deliver the highest quality care in a geographically convenient location, it's imperative to visit them personally. Older Americans can use the data that's been compiled as a springboard to start meaningful conversation about wants and needs; include challenging questions about facility strengths and shortcomings. This checklist is helpful for pointed questions to administrators, nurses, and families of other residents.
