"Many people can avoid nursing home stays using the safety measures presented on," says Richard Brame, founder of, LLC. "Nursing homes should be a last resort. If a nursing home stay is needed for post-surgery rehabilitation most people should be able to return to their homes after that."

There is also a special section on medications. This section addresses how to avoid negative drug interactions and provides resources for discounted and low-cost prescriptions. Information about the growing trend to administer intravenous medications at home is also offered. provides advice on how to choose a skilled nursing facility.  This includes a decision tree to help people determine whether it is needed or not. It reveals best policies to consider and reviews Life Care contracts.
