About Dallas Nursing Homes

Welcome to the Dallas Nursing Homes page of The Eldercare Channel. Long term care residences for seniors that provide full time health care or supervision to seniors are often referred to as nursing homes. Seniors in nursing homes often require a level of care that cannot be provided adequately or safely at home or in an assisted living facility. In a nursing home, they can benefit from full time nursing care and other assistance with the tasks of daily life, which can greatly improve their overall quality of life. The decision to transfer a loved one to nursing home care can be a difficult one for families, and it’s important that you find a facility that everyone is comfortable with.

When looking at potential nursing homes, it’s a good idea to visit several different facilities and take a tour of all of the different areas. It’s even a good idea to visit more than once, arriving unannounced on at least one occasion and at different times of the day so that you can see how the home operates at all times. Take some time to speak with residents and staff as well to get an idea of whether or not people are generally happy there. Another good idea is to inquire about any specialized medical care that they might offer, and of course ask if they have the proper licensing.
