“Visit a nursing home and talk with some of the residents. They are not only moms and dads, but also retired teachers, first responders, former athletes, government employees, and soldiers—the basis of our country’s past lives within these walls.
Older adults should be honored with the dignity they deserve.
As we again open as a society after this pandemic, make that commitment and visit a nursing home.
Just make sure after you enter, the door doesn’t lock behind you.”
Gene Uzawa Dorio is an internal medicine physician who blogs at SCV Physician Report.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “The nursing home crucible.”
