Oldernursedugup I am attracted to LTC for selfish reasons only. I didnt hv grandparents involved in my life. I like hearing about their lives growing up, what they were b4 turning 80. So much has changed in their lifetime. We hv a lady turning 102 today- that's exciting to me. She dresses herself, a bit confused and takes minimal meds. She has awesome genes! Now I hv an entire facility of them. 2nd, no one seems to care for them and I'm always for the underdog. Lastly I've never wanted to work in a hospital. I've spent enough time in them with sick relatives.
