Post 100 yr.old woman

It was so sad to read the story of the 100 year old woman being murdered at a Dartmouth Nursing Home. My heart goes out to her family. I'm thinking it was probably a deranged patient that killed her, but who knows. I know I wish my MOM would of lived to that age, we never want to lose our Mothers no matter how old they are. The horror in the way she left this world is tough to take. I'm sure her family is in great pain. I will remember them in my prayers tonight..............Rebecca

It was sad to learn that they had warning of a serious conflict between the patients. When my mom was in a nursing home she had a similar situation. I demanded that she be moved and she was within two days.

Yes, you do have to stay on top of the management and insist on things. It sounded like the family did try, but someone didn't listen. Sometimes the elderly don't want to cause problems and don't stress to their family how things truly are...it's very sad.

I think all the rooms could be made a bit smaller BUT for single occupancy. Everyone gets a window, no one shares a bathroom. Then they should have small sitting areas evenly spaced in the hallways for 'neighbors to converse if they so choose. That would be in addition to a large central function room they all probably have now.

They are in a similar envorinment as prisoners are. They have so little individualism that huge fights can ignite over the smallest of issues, like a special spot on a window sill for a plant.
