Link: Not Fair To Say “Never Put Me In A Nursing Home”

Thanks to the Washington Post for “Promise You’ll Never Put Me In A Nursing Home.” It’s not fair to ask a spouse or other loved one to make this promise. The fact is, any of us may need skilled nursing care one day.  We shouldn’t make our loved ones agonize over the decision, when the time comes.  A better course is to look around for the kind of place we might like to be, if necessary, and to let our loved ones know.
