In this book, author Chloe JonPaul uses her own experiences to offer tips and advice to families visiting relatives in a nursing home. While there are many books that focus on the financial aspects of nursing home care, this one deals with the personal aspect of putting a loved one in a nursing home.
JonPaul gives families practical advice on how to make the most of nursing home visits. She has been visiting her mother in a nursing home for six years, and she explains how to make visits pleasant and satisfying. The book covers everything from how to converse with a relative with dementia to how to decorate the nursing home resident's room to make it more pleasant and how to handle periods when you can't visit.
In each chapter, JonPaul, who used to be a hospice volunteer and is on the ethics committee of her mother's nursing home, explains what worked for her and her mother. The common sense advice is useful for anyone who wants to avoid awkward or unpleasant nursing home visits with a loved one.
