Learning All About Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Communities

Hi everyone, my name is Irene Maier. In the last few years, I have gone through the nursing home listings four times over in search of a proper home for each of my grandparents. Their varying medical conditions complicated the process. I had to find homes staffed with people who were trained to handle daily medical procedures and properly respond to emergencies.
