34. alot of elderly are afraid of nursing homes
My aunt and uncle were taking care of my uncle's father and he died eventually at 93. He had become a dangerous driver and refused to give up the keys, almost killed several people. He was very stubborn and couldn't accept the idea of going into a nursing home or giving up driving. He also had been an alcoholic. Frankly he was an asshole even when he was younger/healthier, a very difficult human being to be around, it is amazing my uncle put up with him.
