The Golden rule

Al (Mr. V.) has advanced Parkinson's disease.

Many family members, neighbors, health care professionals and even church friends have advised Mrs V. to place him in a Nursing Home.

She politely declines.

"I may not have all the certificates and degrees of a nurse but nobody can take care of Al like I can take care of Al. I've seen a lot of Nursing Homes. They do the best job they can under difficult circumstances but I would never want to live in one, would you? If they're not good enough for me, they're not good enough for Al."

I nodded in agreement.

I could have said "Amen!"
