It has been around 18 months since I lost my grandma. She was actually my husband’s grandma, but to me, I called her grandma. She was the most loving and sincere woman you could ever meet. She was just AMAZING! I think about her and miss her each and every day!
When I look back at the last few months, she was able to live life at home with an assisted nurse coming to the house. She never wanted to go to a nursing home and my husband’s parents honored her wish, by taking care of her and having help come into the house. I am glad that she got to live the end of life at her house that she grew up in her whole life.
However, not everyone can be afford the luxury of being taken care of at home. For example, my grandma (who my son is named after) had severe dementia. There was no ifs or ands about it, she needed to be a nursing home. She had gotten to the point where she had such severe dementia, that she did not remember my name or my dad’s name, for that matter. It was heart-wrenching. She fought going to a nursing home, nail and tooth, but this was the best option for her! She was also an AMAZING woman!
Although there is no correct way to end life in a facility or at home, it is important to take the patient’s safety in hand. If it causes more of a problem for them to be at home, a nursing home, might be the best option. If you decide to go that route, be sure to check out Cheselden, which will help you will the exuberant fees, you might encounter.
I miss all three of my grandma’s each and every single day! Not a day goes by where I don’t think about them!
