The COVID 19 pandemic has showed many of us that parts of or society weren’t functioning as smoothly as we thought they were. It’s also showed us that what we previously thought was the best option actually wasn’t at all, and that alternative options were available. One of those options were nursing homes.
Before the pandemic, many families thought these were the best places for their older loved ones to spend the rest of their lives and receive great care. However, COVID has shown us that that’s not always true. It’s possible that families will be more apt to caring for their elderly loved ones for as long as possible before sending them to long-term care facilities.
