Choosing A Nursing Home

Many of us feel that choosing a nursing home is not a pleasant decision – but what are the alternatives?  When you or an aging senior can no longer take care of themselves, or, if their daily life endangers them in any way, then a nursing home becomes the most likely alternative.

Consider years ago, when there were no nursing homes, and the elderly were left alone to hurt themselves, or to wander the streets, or even left to die.  When those of us who reach the goal of living longer without having our proper mental and physical health as a positive partner in our journey, then the responsible thing to do is to make the decision that will minimize pain, anguish, etc., and prolong a decent life for as long as possible.
