You Put Him In A Nursing Home ? by Dorothy Arel

My hope is that others facing
decisions regarding a loved one's safety
will become enlightened and know that
they are not alone should they need to put
him or her into a nursing facility.

Where do I begin? Having been with
my husband through four strokes,
diabetes (four insulin shots a day), colon
cancer (resulting in a colostomy), 16
prescribed medicines (covering high blood
pressure to multiple stroke dementia), we
finally were challenged again. My husband
had a fifth stroke, which left him immobile.
Gary had fallen numerous times and
was taken by ambulance to the hospital
five times in the last year before the fifth
stroke occurred. We now faced a daily
catheter need and his inability to feed
himself or stand--let alone walk.
What prompts me to write such an
account? My hope is that others facing
decisions regarding a loved one's safety
will become enlightened and know that
they are not alone should they need to put
him or her into a nursing facility.
