Luckily, the facility she was inwas filled with such amazing staff members that we didn’t have to worry too much. It’s always tough to see a loved one nearing the end of their lives, and they too often go ignored when the reality becomes too painful for some.
That’s why its so essential forneighbors to offer support regardless of whether or not they happen to know someone in one of their town’s nursing homes and assisted living communities.
