Thanks for the ping, I was unaware of this story. This is why I will keep all loved ones out of nursing homes if at all possible. My Mom died at home under my Dad's loving care, my MIL is living at home with my FIL with advanced alzheimers, and I will do whatever I have to to make sure that no one I love is put into the care of strangers. I realize that sometimes there are no other options, however, if these places were reserved for only those cases in which there truely was no family member to care for them, or there were complications that made it impossible to take care of them at home, this trend of actively killing the helpless among us would come to a screeching halt.
And yes, I understand exactly how difficult it is to take care of someone at home. But we do owe our parents and other loved ones this.
Damn, just damn!! The mother has lost her children and her husband - all by her own selfishness. Incredible - a family torn apart because the father wanted to live. God bless his children for their unrelentless fight against evil. What a horrific death - being in the care of professionals while gasping for breath and no one hears. I'm sure felos would disagree with me.
Thanks for the ping!
