Finding the Best Nursing Homes in New York City.

Trying to find the perfect Nursing Home for your loved ones can be very tough, especially in New York.  I personally experienced the difficulties when we tried looking for the perfect nursing home for my grandparents in New York City.  Here are some of the things to consider such as the living costs and other factors involved in Finding the best Nursing Homes in New York City for your loved ones, within the five boroughs of New York.

  • Type of residence
  • Size of apartment (studio, one or two-bedroom apartment)
  • Types of services needed
  • Geographical location of the community

There are really many factors that can come into play when choosing the right Nursing Home for your parents or loved ones.   Especially in a place like New York City where the prices can play a very significant role.   Like any of us, we really value and worry about not only the comfort but also the safety of our loved ones, therefore for me it was really important that I did an extensive research on the Nursing Homes that I was planning on choosing for my loved ones.

Goals are to:

  • Understand the different kinds of nursing home care that are available.
  • Review the older person’s needs, your ability to provide care, and your own health care needs and stamina.
  • Learn about the nursing homes in your area and the services they provide.
  • Discuss the situation with the older person, family, friends, and health professionals.
  • Choose the nursing home that best meets the older person’s needs, realizing that no place, even one’s own home, is perfect.

The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States.   With an estimated 2015 population of 8,550,405  distributed over a land area of about 302.6 square miles (784 km2),   

New York City is a very crowded place.  There is plenty and influx of too much information both online and offline of what and where the best Nursing Homes are located.  Sometimes it is really important that you personally get out there and talk to some of the residents of the Nursing Home.

New York City is also the most densely populated major city in the United States.  Located at the southern tip of the state of New York, the city is the center of the New York metropolitan area, one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world.

Taking on the role of a elderly caregiver can be one of the most rewarding jobs in the world, but also one of the most daunting. It’s not for everyone, but  for those who are compassionate, caring and empathetic, it can be perfect for them.  But personally it can also be hard when you are personally taking care of a family member.

Life can be very busy and hectic, caregiving is something that should not be considered lightly and there’s a difference between good and exceptional care.  We all look for certain set of values that a Nursing home has so that we can feel comfortable that our loved ones are being taken care for.

Main Concerns of seniors about Nursing Homes

As I get older plenty of folks around me, especially some of my relatives are getting older. As we get older, there are certain real concerns that starts to creep up and sometimes can cause plenty of anxiety.  For adults who are planning to retire, the process and the ability to be able to have some financial freedom and be able to retire is the main issue.  And as we get even older and as our health starts to fail.  Then our main concern is who will be taking care of us when we get sick and looking for the right Nursing Home that fits our needs.

The Reality of Health Care System in America

What is really frustrating is that even though we have spend so much money on our healthcare system, there are still so much problems that we have to solve.  The United States spends the most on health care per person almost close to $100,000 per person annually, and despite all these tremendous cost, we are still not much healthier than other countries who spends way less than we do. What this basically means is that the amount of spending doesn’t necessarily translate into better health care. There are three different stages as countries develop.

Low-income countries spend the least on health, and the sources of that little bit of funding are international donors and people paying out of pocket. In middle-income countries, people still pay out of pocket, but the government has more capacity and is paying for some health care. And in high-income countries, the money comes mostly from government and private insurance.

Does the impact on health care when people pay out of pocket

When people are paying out of pocket, the poorest people will forgo treatment — or they’ll have treatment and be thrown into poverty because of medical costs. That’s mostly a problem for poor countries, though the U.S. stands out among high-income countries as having catastrophic medical expenditures that put people into poverty.

Do measures of health, like high life expectancy, improve as medical spending goes up?

Well, yes, but it’s a little hard to prove that higher spending causes better health outcomes. It’s easier to show that higher spending leads to more health services provided and more people covered for health services — and that’s what leads to better health. Generally, as health spending goes up, so do health outcomes. But there are so many possible issues that can arise.

I think that the Health Care system in this country still has a long way to go.  I strongly believe that it takes a partisan point of view with any political biases involved in order to really fix the fragile health care system in America.  Everyone is affected both young and old and not just the ones who are sick.   I believe that human mortality is very uncertain and all of us can get sick anytime.  This also has a greater effect on the senior population who are usually on a set budget.  The price of a Nursing Homes especially here in New York City should also be looked at really carefully

Are you financially ready for retirement

The latest studies have shown that plenty of Americans are not prepared for retirement. According to the study, the mean retirement savings of all families is $95,776. But many estimates that the figure doesn’t really add up, Since so many families have zero savings and since super-savers can pull up the average, the median savings, or those at the 50th percentile, may be a better gauge.

The median for all families in the U.S. is just $5,000, and the median for families with some savings is $60,000. There is a huge gap between mean retirement savings ($95,776) and median retirement savings ($5,000) indicates inequality — that the large account balances of families with the most savings are driving up the average for all families.

The Fear Of leaving our loved ones with people we don’t know.

I believe that one of the greatest fears that a person can have is not knowing what will happen to their loved ones especially there parent when they send them of to a Nursing home somewhere in the city.  I think that we can all feel quite guilty and responsible is something bad would happen to our loved ones.  Obviously that is very normal and for anyone who does care about their loved ones, that is understandable.  Sometimes our anxieties and our concerns can stand in the way of sending our loved ones to a great Nursing Home.   That is why it is important for us to really do our diligent research on the best nursing homes that we can find in our area.

One of the main issues that we grapple with growing older involves the mental and physical burden of loneliness which can really have a big effect on a person especially for older adults. The problems associated with loneliness often grow worse with time, that is why it is very important that the staff in the Nursing Home is really able to analyze the symptoms of depression.

As a result, loneliness is frequently a chronic problem in older adults due to increasing health problems also there are plenty of senior medical ailments that can lead to psychological distress. Growing older can also lead to a reduction in social support networks, whether through the death or illness or through a major life changes. The major issue is that losing this kind of emotional support can have a devastating impact on the ability of older adults to cope with stress.

Do we get more introverted as we get older ?

I have visited some of the best nursing homes in New York and I have to say that there has been a pattern of behavior that I noticed within the Senior Population.   I notice that seniors somewhat become more isolated over time.  Of course we all know that “loneliness” and “isolation” which can both lead to depression is huge issue with the patients in Nursing Homes in New York.  But I believe bringing awareness to this issue is a first step into solving the problem.  It is both the responsibility of the staff and also the family to look after the signs and symptoms within their elder family member so that that the issue can be addressed as soon as possible.
