Placing your elderly loved one into a nursing home can be one of the most difficult decisions you could have to make in your adult life. No matter how much research and care you take in making sure the home is the right fit for your loved one, you could still make a mistake and place them in a facility where they get mistreated.
You can’t be there with them every minute of every day, which is what makes it more difficult. You can’t protect your loved ones at all times, and you can’t keep watch over them to ensure they’re being treated correctly at all times either. When you are there, you can be vigilant to make sure that if they are abused, you can witness it and make a report.
