My mother is getting older and I don't want her to end up there.

If my work didn't permit me to spend the time with them that they needed I would consider sending them there but if it was just because it might inconvience me that I wouldn't send them off. They put up with me for 20 years when I was growing up it's the least I could do for them.

I agree with you. Never put your parents in the nursing home.

Never. Never. I'm a court reporter and have done depositions in nursing homes, and they're very sad. And because of my job, I hear a lot of stuff about what goes on behind the scenes. It's very, very sad. My parents took very good care of me when I was growing up, and I will do the same for them.

Hell no I would never send my mother to one of those places. People put old people in there to die and to forget about them. That would just break my mothers heart

No i will never do that, even though if it would cost my life i will not do that. I will never go away or keep my parents away from me.
