193. I'm so sorry. It's so hard to watch a parent leave that way. As for this thread, I'm saddened...
... that so very many DUers really have no clue that that might have been the problem with the "bigot" they are condemning to lay on the floor in God-knows-what condition. Maybe she was bad all her life; maybe she screamed at children in Little Rock when they tried to integrate the schools; maybe she beat her own children, or maybe she was a shoplifter, a car thief, an embezzler. Or maybe she was another Mother Teresa before she lost her faculties. None of that matters when you are old and helpless. Someone should try to take care of you at the end.

Whatever went on with that CNA should be addressed for sure -- something went wrong with her working conditions, if nothing else, because she was placed in an impossible position.

My mom got paranoid in her last 2 years of life; she thought her best friend was stalking her. It was pretty bad, because she really took a lot of stuff out on me personally -- but it could have been worse.

Too many people here just have no clue -- and apparently no compassion because of that. Which is unbelievably sad.
