Our eldest brother John, who was born deaf, recently had a stroke. John doesn't want to go into a Nursing Home, but it's our only option. How do we convince him its best for everyone?

Hi CalifAdvocate, thanks for your input regarding my brother. We have located a place, so that my brother John, can join and speak with others who were born deaf. We feel that this will help John to settle in to the Nursing Home. We know it won't be easy at first, but we do have our Brothers well-being at heart.
Many thanks, Gossip3

I don't know how much care your brother needs, but how about an Adult Foster Home instead of a nursing home? The one we had my father-in-law in before he died, had only one other man living there, so the care was much better. Plus we deliberately chose a home that had a dog, a little baby, and a 2 year old. Since my father-in-law loved animals and kids, it was great.
