Some people have no one to visit or do things for them. If a resident does not use $50 per month, and the amount adds up to $2,000, the government takes the money back.
Yes, there is government assistance involved, but is this how we want our elderly citizens to live? I do not.
Most of these people have led full and productive lives, and find themselves at the mercy of a nursing home, sitting around waiting to die. Please give them the dignity they deserve.
Please visit a nursing home and take your dog. Take a flower, and get to know someone who has very little. It is beneficial to everyone involved.
