Life in the nursing home by Ann Wood

At the nursing home
live people with Dementia
or some other illnesses.
They are at different ages
and nationality.
They all are lonely
and sad.
Some of them
may not have
family living near by.
They need help
with daily living needs.
Some of them
can not get out of bed,
by themselves
and need hoisting.
Other need wheelchairs
or walking aids.
They cry and smiles
and need to be loved,
and to belong to this world.
Some of them need
to be feeding and dressed
at the morning.
Every day they
have different activities.
Some of them like to cooking.
Other to work in the garden.
Some like to
doing arts or poetry.
They also playing
different games
or going out for
day trip with mini bus.
At night they go to bed
and staff have to
check them regularly
and help them
go to the toilet
or give them drinks.
People living with
Dementia need more
help of their care workers
and families.
But they are normal
people like us
just have to live with Dementia.

You always write clearly and sincerely. My closest friend is in a home with dementia. There are no activities. It is heartbreaking.

Nursing homes should be about loving our elderly. This is why my mom and dad stayed home until their last breath. And we the children took care of them. My three sisters and I took turns. We respected them for what they did for us. And in turn we did for them. Have a nice warm day. Louise.

Our nursing homes are the saddest place on earth. It's where we are sent to die. Not much to look forward to.:(
