Leave elders in nursing homes at Christmas

Leave elders in nursing homes at Christmas

Should you take a loved one from a nursing home to your home during Christmas? Probably not!

One reader wrote that her husband told her to leave her mother in the nursing home during the family Christmas party. The woman was extremely upset. She asked for my advice.

My advice: If you are the primary caregiver and the one who visits the nursing home on a regular basis, you need to spend time alone with your family — quality time. You need to share the holiday spirit and joy with your family. You do have a responsibility to yourself. And you certainly need to recharge your own batteries.
