Would you send you parents to a nursing home?

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.

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.
