Let us count the ways that our elders have showed us care. They have built us worlds. They have built us worlds that understand our evolving needs. They have built us worlds that understand our evolving needs that we take for granted easily. They have built us worlds that understand our evolving needs that we take for granted easily because we do not have the grace and love as great as our elders’ to appreciate them. Which is why we must take care of our elders and emulate their courage, sense of attention, self-awareness and dedication to tradition.
All these can be appreciated more if we will be very careful and wise in choosing the right nursing home for our elders. Of course, there are many easier ways for them to be productive in our own homes, but they don’t get to socialize as much as in a care facility because we, their children or loved ones are all too busy with working to sustain our daily finances, basic needs and rushing towards our seniority so we can’t be like them: unwanted, neglected and overlooked. We don’t have enough time anymore to stay with them and simply just to be with them. We must change, and a good way to start is by learning the basics of choosing a nursing home that actually cares.
There are many nursing homes that cater to the peculiar needs of our elders and it bears more responsibilities to us, their children or loved ones to choose the right home that have the best doctors, show great records of non-abuse among the personnel and responsible number of staff per elder ratio. All these are contained in this nifty infographic, and so must be studied with rude scrutiny so we give better care for our senior loved ones.
