My Mother, unlike many I read here, wants to go to a nursing home when the time comes she can no longer care for herself.
comes she can no longer care for herself. She doesn't like people, not close to her children or anyone, but insists on going to a nursing home because she doesn't want to live with either her daughter or son. I am retired and could be great company for her. I want to see her happy, she never is, but I really don't know what nursing homes are like. Neither does she.I can't get her to check out any assisted living facilities or nursing homes to see if she really wants to be there. So I figure she will hate it, but hope she won't. I would love to hear some comments from all of you who have dealt with nursing homes. The pros and cons. Thanks
