Naomi Becker Collier, Partner and Co-Chair of the Pashman Stein Walder Hayden Trusts and Estates & Elder Law practice was quoted in a blog post on Mass Mutual’s website, “How to Choose a Nursing Home”.
“It is important that your loved one have a support system nearby to be their advocate in the facility, which is infinitely more effective if you can drop in at different times of the day, unexpectedly,” said Naomi Becker Collier, co-chair and partner in the trusts & estates and elder law practice at New Jersey-based Pashman Stein Walder Hayden. “Furthermore, if your loved one has ties to the community that remain strong — such as with local family, friends, and religious and civic organizations — it is important, when appropriate, that they be able to continue to actively participate.”
“The nursing home will be your loved one’s new home and, ideally, it should feel like it,” Collier said. “Keep that goal in mind when researching different facilities and listen to your gut.”
