Would or will you put your parents in a home? IMO I think it's horrible to put parents in a home. In my culture you don't see that. The parents when unable to do for themselves lives with one of the children and is taken care if by all. I know I don't want to be put in a home.


Ok, a lot if you ladies seriously hate your parent(s) so on you can't wait to stick them
In a home. Think about your future. Do you want to be stuck in a home and forgotten? And don't say it doesn't, because I know what happens in homes, and how family is never around. It's sad.

Depends, my great grandmother was in a home it was the best thing for her, she needed around the clock care and that was the best place for her to get it.

My mom passed away young and my dad will be his wife's concern. If it's up to me, he'll go in a home. Why would I put myself and my children out to do for him when he never did for me?

never say never. All depends on what medical care they would need. I've seen so many families bring their parent in after finding they cant care for them, stressed from the dementia and so forth. It's a godsend for many. I would definitley take care of my mother as long as I could but know that it may come to a point where 24 hr nursing care would be better.

My "family" stuck my grandparents in a home because they cant get up off their lazy asses to do anything and have every excuse in the book, I truly wish for this reason alone I didn't move 1100 miles away 22 years ago, I would care for them, I would do whatever needed to be done

Here in Ontario you have to meet a certain criteria before you can even apply to go to one. Even then the process can take quite a while. That's where I come in and assist the family with keeping their loved ones at home until they can get to one or eventually pass away. As for MY parents, it would depend on what they had. But just normal aging, no.

It depends.  My family has significant history of advanced Alzheimer's and dementia.  I wouldn't put my parents in a home unless I was truly unable to provide adequate care for them.

 My dad has passed away but my mother is still alive. My siblings and I already have a nursing home picked out. We looked long and hard to find the worse one we could.
