Opening the dialogue on long term placement

From left, Rotary Club of Crowley President Mary Zaunbrecher, left, thanks Angelique Credeur (guest speaker) and Rotarian Bertha Mire (program organizer) for Tuesday’s program on long-term and short-term admissions to nursing homes.

There may not be a more difficult and/or awkward conversation to have with a loved one as the one that concerns nursing homes.
Often times, that conversation comes late in the game, when a loved has started changing as a person or has been admitted to a hospital and the need for long-term care has become obvious.
It’s perhaps what makes the discussion so difficult as the needs now outweigh the particular wants of the individual in question.
