WVSeniorCare.com is your comprehensive online source for information about assisted living communities and nursing facilities in West Virginia.
Choosing to place yourself or someone you love in an assisted living community or nursing facility can be one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make.
First, please take the time to research your options and ensure that your loved one’s needs will be met. Making an informed decision based on quality research will give peace of mind to your loved one and family. A physician can help you determine the level of care and services you or your love one needs.
We encourage families to visit several facilities or communities, talk to staff, and rely on your observations about the care you see. In making the decision to seek assisted living or nursing facility care, we recommend that everyone involved in making the decision thoroughly discusses the available options before your situation becomes an emergency.
During the transition process to the facility or community you select, you likely will notice an additional source of love, support, and comfort from the staff there.
