    Sorry to hear it, Shirley. This illness is stressful enough without having to look at awful nursing homes. One I saw was so bad, I sat in my car in the car park and cried at the awfulness of it all. I asked friends, neighbours and people working in health care and got some good recommendations. I was lucky in finding a nice place in the end but not in my parents home town, unfortunately. In the end, I made a priority of finding a good and nice place and not so much about the location. Good luck to you.
