Grandma’s money,mortgage and menage

nusing-home-abuse-nj-and-paAfter putting Grandma Lee in the Nursing home. Her son and daughter-in-law realize they could not keep up with the payments of the nursing home.

When payments got into the big picture, that means family started to get into the picture. Because “WE NEED HELP” became their slogan.

But, they forgot to realize that it was not them that needed help, but Grandma Lee. She was now in a place she did not want to be, around people she did not know and away from her comfort zone, all because of her children.

How long will she be in the home? No one knew.

“We’ll, before she leaves, she has to make improvements on her health”.

However, it wasn’t the best environment for her. How can one possibility make improvements in an environment their minds have a hard time functioning in?

So, one month, turned into two months and two months into three and so on and so forth until…she is still in there today.

Her Money, Her Mortgage and Her Menage

Grandma LeeA few blogs back I blogged about my grandma and my family.

My Grandma Lee fell sick late last year. She lived all alone in a beautiful trailer, on beautiful land, in the state that is for lovers. Virginia.

However, apparently, there aren’t that many loving people there. When she fell sick, her son (the only one of her living 3 children who lives in Virginia) picked her up and put her in a nursing home.

My grandma is the first one in the family to go in a nursing home. She is also the one in the family who took care of her mother, my great-grand mother, when everyone else was too busy.

“We put her in there because we can’t help her”.

“It would be better for us and her, if she was in there”.

When questioning her children about the medicine my grandma now has to receive (even though she originally didn’t take meds because of our religion), ┬áthe reply was, “my faith is not that strong”.

So, they put her in the nursing home.
