MUSIC VIDEO

A nursing home poses one of dementia’s greatest quandaries for caregivers. There are so many pros-and-cons, it is such a huge life decision. Even when one knows it is the best decision, the choice remains challenging & deeply emotional. Watch this music video called, “From His Window” & share your thoughts.

  • Sometimes, it is the right time for a nursing home.
  • Sometimes, we pull the trigger too soon, doing what is easier now and then feeling guilty later.
  • Sometimes, caregivers ruin their own health by keeping a loved one at home for too long.
  • Sometimes, it is the right time for a nursing home, but we should visit longer or take our loved ones on outings more often.

We cannot do more than our best, so how do we know when we are doing our best? Watch this short video called “From His Window”, as it poses this dilemma in a most beautiful way. Share your thoughts in the comments below.

This is so moving I cried. I would do anything to have our man back, but!!! not the way she was at her passing.. She was in a care home for a lot of reasons. It was the best decision for her mostly. She loved it. She said she was in a five star hotel. The memories I have of her there are the best in the last years of her life. Beautiful song. Thank you
