Tip of the Week

It is important to know what services and supplies the nursing home provides and what might be hidden extra costs. Private duty nurses are very seldom included in the cost of care.
Cost for extras, such as hair shampoo or conditioner, can be exorbitant. Make a list of the ´extra´ necessities and supply them yourself.
Talk with the administrator and find out ´who is in charge of what´ and who to contact if any problems arise. Ask questions and be informed in advance.
