When promising to care for our infirmed and elderly, Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities have one job, to keep our loved ones safe. The means in which they do this are not difficult to understand. They must accurately assess each residents needs, prepare a care plan to care for those needs, monitor the Care Plan for efficacy and start over again if necessary.
