I can only speak from my own experiences, I had the "burden" of growing up with my Grandmother living with me. I learned to sew, garden, cook, I learned the wonderful stories of her past and the history of my family. She even taught me how to read music and play the mandolin. Now my mother is disabled and my son has that same burden to look forward to. My healthcare career started by working in a nursing home and if my son ever puts me in a nursing home, when I die I will rise up from the grave and haunt his every waking moment!!

I am only reporting truthfully what I have seen. I made no value judgements, but reported what I witnessed. If it bothers you, hey that's too bad.


alameda, alright, you just stated the facts, ok, no problema
but if it bothers me why is it too bad? bad for you or me? make yourself clear, plz.

canli
you should indeed end discussing with me on islam


Why would i want to discuss it with you at the first place ?! hee

Quoting femme_fatal:


because you know nothing on it. the only way you believe in this religion is the way you were raised in this. you have no choice, so do many other muslims, because apostates should be punished by death accordin to islam.
your knowledge on this religion is too weak to discuss with me, all you know is a traditional local islam.


Next thing you will teach me about my OWN religion İmam FF ?! hee hee
İ wonder how many years have you studied İslam,and how many İmams have taught you so you are qualified to teach İslam?!
You made me laugh.. thx lol

Quoting femme_fatal:


i will always question and criticise you, no matter how many defenders you have on this site.
cheese


Defenders?!
Hmmmmm,defend me against what ? who is attacking me,and on what base ?!
For being Muslim and Eastern ?!
Anyhow good to know that i have many defenders in this site
Feel free to do whatever you want dear,if i care !

I didn't say it was common, I reported what I saw, and you did not see.

Quoting teaschip1:



It is not common in the states to convert to Muslim, who ever is painting this picture, is totally incorrect. Same as Muslim men converting into Christians, very few.

My grandmother is in a nursing home currently and loves it. Couldn't imagine being anywhere else. She has made so many friends and they have so many activities for her, even wine tasting ever Thursday night. I realize there are some bad nursing homes and you should really investigate them before making a decision, however not all of them are terrible.

I see how stressful it is from friends of mine who caregive for their parents. They said they could never put their parents in a nursing home, but now are regretting that decision. I know it's a difficult decision to make, sometimes it's the best decision. They can be around people their own age, have planned activities and still fill independant instead of having their children do everything for them and being resentful.

I could never imagine asking my son to put his life on hold to take care of me, I would never do it.

I think you make a good point but I would still rather be with my family. I know there are good retirement homes and I am glad that your grandmother is happy and in a safe place. I guess I never really thought about my grandmothers presence as anything out of the ordinary. I don't even think my parents discussed it. It seemed normal and we all loved having her. I know this is normal for most Turkish families to have extended family living with them too. I think those are the kinds of things that make me grateful that I am married to a Turkish man. I think an American man would have a serious problem with one or both of my parents living with me.
