An older woman near 90 that I've known for 40 years is in a nursing home with 1 son who is never in town. When I found out she is in a nursing home, I went to see her. She sits alone all day. Her memory is getting worse. She doesn't have anyone talking to her. SHE CAN HEAR A LITTLE IF YOU SHOUT IN HER EAR. HER MEMORY GETS A LITTLE BETTER THE MORE YOU TALK TO HEAR. She's just waiting to die.
