Mom needs 24 hr care. My sister and I visited a skilled nursing facility yesterday. We are very limited in our town. Mom needs 24 hour care. The nursing home we visited had a 100 people waiting list. We were 101 plus they had 3 people to a room with 1 bathrom. They had a waiting list semi private room of 6 months to a year and the hallway where most of the 3 to a room had a terrible feces smell. I couldnt see that it as dirty but the smell was sickening. I don't uderstand how this is ok. Is it normal for nursing homes to have 3 people to a room? What should I expect from a nursing home? I just couldn't do that to mom.
