Nursing Home/Skilled Nursing Facility & Rehab Comparison Checklist Overview
The Nursing Home/Skilled Nursing Facility & Rehab Comparison Checklist is a tool that relies on the author’s experience as a caregiver. Typically, when someone needs to choose a Skilled Nursing Facility or Rehab, they haven’t had any past experience with this type of care, living or decision making, in other words, they don’t know what to expect.
It can be overwhelming deciding to move to a Skilled Nursing Facility if you don’t know the right questions to ask, have a way to organize your answers and compare your options. Making an uneducated and/or emotional decision is risky and the stakes are high. When embarking on this decision-making process, with all the best intentions, you still don’t know what you don’t know! So instead of making a decision based only on hearsay, appearances and/or costs, you’ll now be able to make decisions based on facts and your specific needs:
The Nursing Home/Skilled Nursing Facility Comparison Checklist was created from years of experience; those experiences were organized into a framework which allows for multiple facilities to be reviewed, priorities to be set and a selection made that is best for all involved, especially the person(s) that will be living in their new home.
The Seniors Resource Hub® Nursing Home/Skilled Nursing Facility & Rehab Comparison Checklist has direct questions and suggested actions, enabling you to compare facilities and make a fact-based vs. emotional decision.

The Comparison Checklist is a collection of questions and suggested actions which will provide important information for the fact-based Nursing Home/Skilled Nursing Home decision making process. This checklist should also be used for Rehab.
When comparing options and making a decision, don’t rely on your memory alone and risk the possibility of confusing one option or facility with another. The checklist helps eliminate emotional or impulse decisions and allows for a happier and smoother transition. Once the move has been made, you don’t want to regret your decision.
