Throughout life, it is important to have a plan to take care of your family and yourself. As an infant, your family likely had a team of loved ones and professionals to offer advice and help care for you. This pattern of needs and support never leaves our lives. Despite this, many of those aging find they do not have the tools they need to carry out daily activities or support with medical treatments. To change this, many are seeking information to help build a plan to support their vision for the later chapters of their lives. Long term care facilities are an integral part of that plan and come in many different varieties. The following paragraphs will serve to cover how most of these facilities are structured and some of the resources they offer.
When you are a senior citizen with a beloved pet, you may wonder can I bring my dog to a nursing home.

Today, more assisted living facilities are permitting pets such as caged birds, fish in aquariums, cats and dogs. However, you shouldn't assume that you can bring your pet to the assisted living home. Some nursing homes have rules about the types of pets that can live with residents, including excluding certain breeds or refusing pets that aren't trained properly.
