Since the elderly get sick, you're going to get elderly patients wherever you go (Edited to add: and I think that's a good thing since you enjoy them - just not all the time in the setting you're in
. I was in that position not terribly long ago.) Is there a particular area that you feel drawn to? Our hospital has a very nice orientation for nurses going into the float pool. If your area facility does too, maybe you could do that, float for a while and see what grabs you?
Home care might also be an option. You could see your folks upstream of the nursing home.
