    My grandma is in an old age home now. My grandfather just couldn’t take care of her himself, and the nearest relative is 3 hours away. In a big country like Canada, some families are spread out over a long distance and don’t get to see each other a lot.

    Yes, sometimes it just can't be avoided. In such cases, all you can do is try to find the best home and visit as much as you can and keep your eyes wide open for signs of neglect/abuse.

    Some of the homes are super normal too, depending on how much help the person needs. My grandmas sister is also in a home, but only because she has dementia. So a nurse comes to make sure she takes her meds, and help her with some things, but other than that it’s just like a normal apartment. It’s all decorated with her furniture and pictures, it’s got a kitchen a living room and bedroom a bathroom. Tbh it’s nicer than my apartment :rofl:

    i think we cant spend our life with beautiful and decorated stuff around us. we need love from our surroundings that can not be possible without the people we love, I cant imagine my life in such homes without my family members.

    Yes, ideally, we can take care of our elderly loved ones ourselves...but sometimes that's just not feasible.

    My mother is 79, and at the moment she is in good health, and is kicking ass and taking names. She is sharp as a tack, and don't take no slack from anyone. She lives alone, but I visit her every day without fail (she lives about 15 minutes away) and check to make sure everything is working right in her house, etc. I hang our for a few hours, watch TV with her and just keep her company for a while.

    But, should she require some kind of care in the future, I am prepared to move her into my house and hire whatever medical care she may need. Not everyone can do that though.

    I have exactly zero relatives in my city. And growing up I never had grandparents live in the same city as me. So I think if I had grown up with family members I might have a different view on how they should be taken care of, but I just didn’t grow up around lots of family. If it were my own parents I might be willing to move, but even then idk. They live 10 hours away in a city I hate rofl.

    My grandfather is 97 and lives by himself and can take care of himself just fine. Of course, we visit him everyday and drive him to places and check up on him. :)

    Yes, grandma is is the same place as great aunt Marion. Grandmas room is all decorated and set up like her house was just smaller scale. Grandma thinks she’s living in a train but whatever. They both need 100% full time supervision.

    Oh, last time I saw Marion she didn’t need full time supervision and she was in a home in Calgary. I guess now that I think about it, that was a long ass time ago.

    I'd rather live in nursing house than family home. I will have more freedom and maybe a chance for sex party. I read some nursing houses actually secretly offer this service. Hell, I don't need anything more than internet connection and a kind nurse.

    Sex is the solution for peace. The middle east is busy killing each others because they are sex-deprived.

    The same reason parents kick their kids out as soon as they turn 18.
