Dear Jennifer,

My mother needs a nursing home. The hospital asked me to pick 10 homes. It’s overwhelming. I don’t want to pick the wrong one. If I’m honest, I don’t want to pick any. I want this to all go away. I’ve talked to so many people that all I’ve managed to do is find out there are complaints about every nursing home in town. How am I ever supposed to pick the best one?
Please pick this letter to print. I can’t stall the social worker much longer.

Thank you,

Dear Charlene,

You are facing one of the hardest decisions families make. At least this is the common belief. Personally, I think a good nursing home team provides an enhanced life for your elder family. It isn’t the nursing home that is the biggest struggle; it is the aging and changing of your loved one; work to keep that in front of your mind as you move forward. See today’s article for more.
