Of course, the unfortunate aspect is that real life experience tells us that some facilities look good to visitors but don’t turn out well for residents. Visit your elder loved one often, and at varying times of day. Not only is your family member likely to appreciate feeling loved and remembered, but if any of the things that made the facility look good to you in the first place were illusions for visitors, you are more likely to figure that out by visiting at various times of day. The staff should have nor problem with you visiting anytime from early morning until l well into the evening.
