Making the right decision sometimes means making a hard decision. Have you ever had to place a family member in a nursing home because you knew it was the right decision? You probably agonized over the action for weeks, maybe even months, but the situation wasn’t improving — instead it was worsening by the day. It’s a tough decision to place a loved one in a nursing home because they’re not home. However when care needs exceed what can be provided at home or medical needs increase, many times it’s the right decision.
