New York, New York (PressExposure) November 20, 2008 -- IQ Nursing Homes has recently updated its Nursing Home Resource and is now offering information about nursing home admission, paying for long term care, and nursing home services. The IQ Nursing Homes website has been created with the goal of providing a comprehensive source of nursing home information, and this recent update marks another step in our progress toward achieving this goal.
These recent additions to the Nursing Home Resource Center address many practical concerns that individuals may face when entering a nursing home. If you are concerned about paying for nursing home care, review our web page dedicated to this topic to learn your options. Medicare, Medicaid, long term care insurance, Medigap, and a number of other payment options are listed and explained. Learn how to prepare yourself or a loved one for admission to a nursing home, including what to bring and how to handle transfers from a hospital or another nursing home facility. Nursing homes offer a wide array of services and employ a number of different types of health care professionals to address the needs of residents. Educate yourself on all of these services and the skills of different professionals by reviewing our Nursing Home Care section. This will allow you to be sure that the nursing home you choose can adequately provide the type of care you need.
In addition to these recent additions, the IQ Nursing Homes Resource Center also features a national nursing home directory, guide to choosing a nursing home, a database of nursing home and elder care facility deficiency and inspection rankings, and links to additional online government resources.

IQ Nursing Homes offers a free nursing home abuse claim form, which will be reviewed by a qualified nursing home attorney within 36 hours. Nursing home employees who have witnessed neglect can report it anonymously.
