What is reasonable to expect in skilled nursing?
I am so upset having my dear Mother in skilled nursing. Although this looks like a decent place, the food is awful. I am going to have to start cooking for my Mom and taking her food as the food is not conducive to good health. The noise level is very disturbing. My family are quiet people... The TV's blaring and general noise in this facility is awful. I am just heartsick and haven't figured out how to begin to sort through it all or know how to find an alternative. There are 4 skilled nursing facilities in our area and I thought I had picked the best of the 4. I am shocked at how we provide for our elderly in this country. The place my mom is in is at least clean and the staff are kind, but i hate the atmosphere she is nin. I would really like to bring her to my home but because of her physical needs it would not be a safe environment for her. My husband tells me it would do us in. We are not young ourselves This whole situation is just breaking my heart. My poor mom cannot even talk because of her stroke to tell me what she is thinking about things. Is this the best I can expect for the end of my mothers life?
