    A start in the conversation

    As Someone Who Has Been In Nursing Homes during her 30s with cognition intact, I vouch for every horrid word about them and the need for change. There are more and more people in their 40s and 50s entering these institutions, which is a particularly frightening prospect. I was in one of the better ones and there was still a foot of feces smeared on the door that cleaners missed. When I'd go unresponsive, I'd heard the nurses talking about me "...I don't know how you do it, she (me) was fine an hour ago and now you have to deal with her like that?". The dietitian explained that they had to put a lot of sugar in the potato salad so residents would eat it; I refused. Having demented but ambulatory residents come into your room and eat you food every night as you may bedbound and sleep deprived but unable to stop them gets tiring. I would definitely take my life instead of submitting myself, in my state, to what I dub the "living morgue" again. This book just gets the toes of all the issues wet.
