This article is a personalized piece on the decision to move into assisted living. I was moved by the story, especially this one line at the end: “No matter what you call it, going to the home is the end of the road.” This line is not a throw away at all. It is the essence of what people feel when moving into an assisted living. Most people who enter never return home, but make this their last or second to last residence. We must be mindful of this when discussing the subject in communities, because without that sensitivity, we are missing the boat on how to provide for our elderly.
