My Mom is 90 years old and has been unable to transfer herself from chair to bed, nor walk for at least 5 years now. She is mild mannered, sweet, and never complains, nor ask for anyone to do anything specific for her. She has been in a nursing home now for about 4 years. Yesterday I went to visit her after she had dinner. The nursing home staff rolls the residents to the hallway after eating, then eventually go put them back to bed. I waited with her yesterday and she seemed very tired with her head bowed down. As we waited for someone to come put her in bed, she quietly said to me, "Don't get old. You end up being good for nothing." My heart sank. I feel so sad for her. Unfortunately, we have not been able to put her in the car and take her places for a long time now. The nursing home doesn't care to put her in the car because she might get injured. She can not help with her legs, so she is dead weight. We can not transfer her in and out of the car. They do a few activities in the nursing home, but other than that she has to be sitting in a wheel chair waiting for someone to assist her or laying in bed day after day. She doesn't like to watch tv either.
