Thanks Wally! I identify with your question of ‘why weren’t they visiting in the nursing home” . That is when the person really needed them…more than at the funeral. I’ve asked the same question! I don’t know if it is judging or if it a sensitivity to the pain that a nursing home resident feels when family and friends don’t visit as often as the resident needs them to be there. People live busy lives today and I think that is one reason for not visiting. Another, the fear that ‘this may be me someday..’ I’ve seen the joy on a resident’s face when their family brings them in a Wendy’s Frosty or takes them out for a ride. Small things to help them know that they are not forgotten.
