I’m not comfortable sharing this. It’s still too fresh. But for the sake of transparency, I’ll give it a shot.
My grandmother is in a nursing home. I’m not proud of this fact. Under many circumstances, I do NOT consider nursing homes normal or acceptable options for elderly care. I do not agree with the principle of nursing homes. My personal viewpoint. You don’t have to agree. I’m not sure where I came upon this belief system, but I hold families responsible for caring for their own.
But there’s a problem. My grandmother frequently cannot remember who we are or where she is, and her speech is rarely understandable.
