Care Patrol: “Better Senior Living Choices”: CarePatrol Educational Series
Finding a Quality Nursing Home
CarePatrol helps families find Assisted Living, Independent Living, Memory Care and In Home Care.
We prescreen and review state violation reports for every care community and service that we recommend.
Things to look for during your tour:
*Do you smell urine or strong antiseptic cleaners to possibly cover up odors?
*Are staff members busy helping and talking with residents?
*Are patients involved in activities or just sitting around bored with nothing to do?
*What tone of voice does the staff use with residents?
*Are they addressed politely by name?
*Are staff members responsive to patient or family member needs and requests?
How can CarePatrol Assist My Family?
CarePatrol can show you each nursing home’s latest Medicare survey prior to or during your tour of the facility.
CarePatrol can personally pick you up at your home and tour you through our personally recommended nursing home options for you.
We will work with your hospital discharge planner or social worker in making your loved one’s transition easier.
We can also help you find assisted living or memory care for your loved one after his/her short term rehabilitation in a nursing home.

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston.
I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan.
I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
Please call CarePatrol for more information on their service.
