My grandma was placed in a nursing home a whie ago, I usually go with my grandpa to see her, and we try to go about once a week. In the last few months, though, between getting set up to start classes, and now classes starting, I hadn't been able to go in quite some time. Anyway...while we were there visiting, this other lady started talking to us, since my grandma was pretty much just sleeping the whole time. She was talking about what a funny lady she was, and he she enjoyed my grandma.
Then she said something that really saddened me...she said she hadn't seen her childrne in like 20 years, and that they probably didn't even know which facility she was in. Her family doesn't come to visit her.
Is that common, that families just dump residents off, and never see them again? She said after the money ran out for her kids...that was it.
