Forgotten by mysticmorning Forgotten by mysticmorning
I really hated to post something so depressing after posting a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of my friends. But there is a sadness in me for all the elderly men and women who have been placed in rest homes and forgotten by family and friends. I still remember visiting rest homes and have an older woman come up to me and say her family never visit her anymore. It haunts me. Please visit when you can the places where there is no hope and spend a little time with them

Oh wow, this is fantastic! Haunting and sad, and a good message too. It's definitely made me think on what I can do to help alleviate someone's loneliness. Thank you for showing me :)...I don't know whether to put a smilie or a sad face ...I'll put both :( Thanks again.

Thanks for this. We need more people making art to make us all think and evaluate who and what we are. When I lived in Montenegro, I saw NO nursing homes. The people there would not even think of having their honored elderly put away. I know, with Alzheimer's and other problems and situations, a nursing home is necessary, But in too many cases, they're used as human dumping grounds for relatives we're too busy to care for.

I agree,there are times when people think there is no other resorces, lifting is a tough one for many. There are so many resorces now where nurses, pt, and others who come to the house and help and we had plenty of help with dad, so we could keep him home. We always had to reasure him, we wouldn't send him to a nursing home. Just about all the nursing home staff in our area is really bad with the care they give.I walked into one a couple of years ago where all the people were lined up in wheelchairs faceing each other up and down the enterance. The over whelming smell of urine was alwful. The people had their heads hung down and no one at the station was paying any attition. They were to busy sitting around the station laughing and having fun.I saw so much there, I still have nightmares over it.
