The Massachusetts Advocates for Nursing Home Reform is the only consumer advocacy group in the state fighting on behalf of nursing home residents. We can’t do this alone. Join us!

Choosing a Nursing Home

Ultimately, the decision to choose a nursing home is very personal. It is a subjective decision that needs to be right for your loved one and you. MANHR has extensive experience and resources to help guide you in this decision.

Managing the Experience

Getting yourself or your loved one into a nursing home is not easy and you should feel a sense of satisfaction having accomplished that.  However, getting quality care and dignity in one’s daily life is an ongoing process and MANHR believes you should think about this as “managing the experience.”  

Dealing with Challenges

Invariably, as the loved one of a nursing home resident, you will encounter issues and problems that you believe are impacting the quality of life of your loved one. MANHR has resources and perspectives to help guide this process.

MANHR, founded in 2000 by grassroots volunteers, is the sole statewide consumer group advocating for improvements in the care, dignity and quality of life for Massachusetts nursing home residents.  MANHR supports and advocates on behalf of nursing home residents and their family members, who deal with the challenges of having a loved one in a nursing home.
