Question Anything I need to know for 1st visit to nursing home?

Midnite and I are going for our first visit on Saturday. The nursing home is one level, so everyone is all together, meaning ill, assisted, and mentally challenged. I'm slightly concerned about the mentally ill part because in past experiences/volunteer work has proven they can be very belligerent. Of course I know they can't help it, but will Midnite know that? He is smart and by the standard he should know the difference and I think he will, but what if I'm approached in a manner that he feels is threatening? I know that remaining calm on my end will be extremely important. What else can I expect? Do I just walk around and whoever wants to see him approaches if do I attempt to approach everyone? I'm excited and I want this to work out.
