A Kettle of Mixed Emotions: Grandma Moves Into a Kentucky Nursing Home

Request Your Free Consultation

It’s time for your mother to move into a Louisville nursing home. You’ve discussed it with your spouse and children, friends and relatives. You know it’s the right thing to do, and yet…

You’ve got that plug of guilt stuck in your throat. Shouldn’t you be able to take care of your mother yourself? After all, she took care of you for more than 18 years.

Grandma won’t be living with you any longer. She won’t be there when the kids get home from school. Her exquisite homemade lasagna won’t be releasing its intoxicating aroma throughout the house when you get home from work. You won’t have that resource on site to hear your stories of office spats and injustices and to voice an opinion—invited or not—on everything. She won’t be there to teach your son how to play backgammon and give your daughter some grandmotherly advice on boys.

She’ll be in a nursing home.

You’ll definitely have some adjustments to make. Visit often enough, and your daughter will survive broken hearts. Be a regular face at the nursing home, and your son will get so good at backgammon that he’ll be able to beat even you. Get that lasagna recipe, and you can take a tray of the scrumptious meal to the nursing home to share with your mother; she’ll love it!

It’s not the end of the book, only a new chapter.
