Nursing homes
provide skilled
care to people
who cannot be
cared for at
home and need

24-hour
nursing
care.

Lastly, Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining
Treatment (POLST) is a recently developed
program that is designed to improve the
quality and type of care people receive at the
end of life. It translates personal wishes into
medical orders. In Pennsylvania, the POLST
form is on bright pink paper, meant to be
displayed in your home for others (such
as EMS) to see or in your medical chart.
It can be transferred from one care setting
to another and should generally be revised
when there are significant changes in health
or condition.
Many older adults and their families will
someday face the difficult, complex, and multidimensional decision to move from home
to a higher level of care. Of course, most
older adults wish to remain in their home,
so-called aging in place, but physical ailments
and cognitive impairment may hinder their
ability to remain safely and independently in
place. Depending on the level of care needed,
one may consider moving to a skilled nursing

or assisted living facility. In order to make
the best decision, it is important to consult
with your health care provider or a geriatric
care manager, tour multiple facilities, and
have your advance directives in order. As
with many uncertainties, the best time to
make a change is before a crisis happens.
