Visiting a loved one in a nursing home is like gardening. We plant our seeds and then watch them grow with anticipation and then days and weeks pass and weeds have filled the garden. Our loved ones are planted in the nursing home and at first we visit frequently and then visiting becomes more of a job than a pleasure and eventually we dislike visiting even infrequently. Know that loved ones in nursing homes feel trapped and lonely. Some have no way out. If you’re experiencing this yourself or with a loved one, you have options for different types of care outside of the nursing home environment. Contact me and I’ll help.
