That is a nice way of putting it. Because the stubborn folks being spoken about here could very well end up being your ma or pa, could be your grandparents, could even be you in the not too distant future. Because time flies. The older you grow, the quicker time flies away from you. Whoosh. It feels as though your whole life just flashed by in the blink of an eye. And all you were doing was just getting started.
No, you have to take your hats off to these stubborn old folks. They sure never wanted to give up. And they wanted to keep on carrying on doing the things they’ve always been doing, year in and year out. Until that day finally came. Until they could do no more. You picture this. Picture characters clutching so fiercely to the doorframes as the orderlies in their white coats attempt to whisk these old folks to the frail care center some ways out of town.
Only the thing is, because these folks have become so frail and weak, some of them even losing their minds, they can put up no resistance. They had it in mind to do so, but they could never put up a fight. And their lives ended once those doors were shut on them forever. They were never going back home to a life they had been used to all their lives. But none of this ever needs to happen because your ma and pa, your grandparents, you even, could be enjoying assisted living at home services.
All you have to do is make the right call and someone you love could have his or her dignity and sense of pride, self-worth and independence secured at home.
