Is it Good or Bad for a Grandmother to Live in Retirement Home

Dallas, TX

I recently had my grandparents shifted into a retirement home since it was difficult for me to work and take care of them at the same time. My parents live in a different state so I have to manage my garndma. I moved her to a home healthcare which have great services and fun activities to keep her busy. I don't know whether I did the right thing or not. Any suggestions on what to do?

actually, the right thing is to ask your grandmother if she wants to be in retirement center or not. Also you need to come to her often. If you have possibilities, there is a great decision to buy apartments for her near you or to buy apartments in Latvia , for example

I think it depends if you have a huge family to take care of her then there should be no need but if you are a small family working then you should ask her if she wants to go to a retirement home since it would be a good place for her where she would not only be taken care of but enjoy the rest of her life.

It's a complicated question. It takes time before you know if it's right or wrong. You need to get your mother's opinion and decide together with her. We had that question, my father refused, and we accepted it. It's not right for everyone. I am sure it's better to be near.

I agree with Alex992 but there remains the fact of financial and overall health. If your family makes a combined decision on what right for your grandmother than it would be the right one since you all know what is best for her. Although do make sure that you all have easy access to being close to her.
