The Fact Sheet, Reuniting Residents and Families What to Look for and Questions to Ask as You Resume Visits in a Long-Term Care Facility, discusses what to look for regarding the resident and the facility, what to ask (especially about what was going on when you couldn't visit) and what to do when you have questions or concerns about the resident's care.
