    My brother has been here 7 months and the care that has been given to him has exceeded our expectations. He is also free to move around and join in activities and to go out with family if he wishes

    I think we should all be honest and call nursing homes what they really are... prisons!. These people are locked away from their family and friends and are no longer free. I am locked away from my grandmother. When did we start treating elderly people less than... disgusting. As a catholic I have started moving away from the Vatican because of this place!
