I just finished reading a thought provoking article in the New York Times entitled, “What I Wished I’d Done Differently.” The article is a personal account of the mistakes made by its author, Jane Gross, in caring for her aged mother.
The article deals with the problems of nursing home and assisted living care. Ms. Gross acknowledges her mistake in failing to find a geriatric specialist ( a doctor who has specialized training in caring for the elderly) to take care of her mother.
I cannot say it better…read this compelling story for yourself.
