Getting Over the Guilt of Placing a Loved One in a Home – Transition to Nursing Home – Alzheimer’s | HealthCentral

If we could control events, most of us would never want our elders to
be so sick that they need the care of a nursing home, especially homes
that are still operating in the dark ages, as some of them still are.
Many homes have now moved forward into person-centered care, and
reluctant caregivers often find their elders thrive, once they have
adjusted. Still, it’s hard.

their parents or spouse. I’m here to tell you that you are not giving
up. You are just getting help.
