If you were unable to care for yourself any longer and your spouse was no longer living would you want your children to take care of you.. would you allow them. or would you rather be place in a nursing home?

 BECAUSE I HAVE 3 STEP CHILDREN I DONT THNK I WOULD ALLOW THEM TO WASTE THE REST OF THEIR LIVES TAKEN CARE OF ME. I ALSO HAVE A BIRTHSON WHO WE HAVE JUST RECENTLY MET. I AM  SURE I COULD PUT THAT SORT OF BURDON ONTO HIM EITHER.. I WOULD TO BE PUT INTO A NURSING HOME...

    • I can see where you are coming from but I think I would want to be with my family. I took care of my girls and it is fitting that they do the same for me in my old age or otherwise ill health. I also like the idea of multi generational homes, with the elderly helping to take care of children and imparting wisdom from their experiences. Remaining useful and being part of life is what I want. I used to work in nursing homes many years ago and it was so sad to see people give up because their families forgot them. I would not want this.
