When you no longer have the ability or the means to pursue life interests and you find yourself in a Long Term Care facility . . .
Let's look inside where then and now are existing in a time warp because WE don't see reality . . .
Until it's thrust upon us . . . and that's too late.Come along with me to visit Mom's old SNC/LTC facility or drop into one and really look around, listen and learn.
Mom stayed in her room; sat in one place; busied herself with what she had or found to do; and, waited ...waited...waited
Those marketing pieces and glossy pictures and videos don't portray the reality of almost every SNC/LTC facility. Under staffed, run by people who focus on the bottom line (even the Not For Profits) and constantly besieged by more and more paperwork and less and less time to devote to services -- they are as "shelved" as the people they serve.
Take a moment and stop, think and consider.
