From the front page of the NY Times–A dying Father’s last wish

This is a great article that does a wonderful job pointing out of the many fair and just issues that this blog was created to address–allowing seniors to die in their own homes instead of nursing homes.

I know that this isn’t the only blog posting that is entitled “A Father’s Last Dying Wish” but I am very glad that Joseph Andrey’s daughter, Stephanie was able to get some great publicity.  I wish her well and all the others that are trying to keep parents out of nursing homes when the parents never wanted to be there in their final days. Good luck to her.

  1. What a nightmare! But hopefully this article will help bring about some changes in the system that currently warehouses seniors to their own detriment. And another irony is that Gloria was there, ready, willing and able to take care of Mary in the best possible way. But no.
