Health Tip: Choosing a Senior Home

Signs it's a good place for a loved one

(HealthDay News) -- No one wants to end up in a senior home. But there are ways to identify when such a place is well-suited for a loved one.

The appearance and attitude of the existing residents may offer great clues, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. The group suggests looking for residents who:

  • Seem to be content and happy.
  • Act friendly.
  • Interact well with you and each other.
  • Are involved in social activities organized by the home.
