    Not sure how I feel about this one. On one hand, the entire 16 member resident panel unanimously approved it and have done this on multiple occasions in the past without issue. On the other hand, the woman in the photo has dementia, but then you factor in that she must have decided to keep the photo and never complained about it. Her son is the one who's outraged. What do you think? Legit complaint or obvious money grab?

    And another example of people being afraid of sex, understandably of course, since they do not have sex and old people definitely should not have sex.

    It is just a misguided person doing this, but sadly, even those get guided by the blind.

    At least it is only happening in the greatest, ahem, biggest, ahem, in that country that ****s itself quite often.

    Two thoughts...

    This is a 'volutaryness' test. If the stripper wanted it and the mom wanted it, whats the problem? Now if the place was using the son's money for a service that wasn't listed, that gets more complicated.

    Each time the baby boomers go through a life stage, they tend to revolutionize both what the participants of that stage can do and how society views the stage. Im looking forward to see how they change old age.

    Me too. My mom is in the baby boomer generation and she said she would have no problem with this. They might end up being fun old people.

    I'm looking forward to motor-boating a busty stripper when I'm 90.

    Simple. His mother beat his ass when she caught him with porn, etc when he was younger. Now its time for revenge and why not make some money while doing it? :p

    I hope when I'm old and dying in a nursing home, they bring in some strippers for me.

    I think the comment was meant ironically...or, at least, I hope so.:D

    In Mass, Nursing Homes are, in theory, supposed to provide some privacy arrangement for a resident to engage in sexual contact with a spouse or significant other.

    In my experience, I've never been aware of this actually happening...but it is supposed to be available to residents.

    Me afraid from sex: definitely, but I do not care if others have sex, unless I shall be involved.

    I rarely mean something not ironic, except battery viruses.

    Note to my child... When I get to this point put me in a home that sends Strippers or Hooter's Girls to see the residents.

    Yep, when I worked as the maintenance manager at a nursing home we were sued because we took a group to a bar for lunch. They old guys wanted a bar burger and a beer and wanted to watch some baseball.

    So we took them. They are adults. We got papers served to the home from a woman that didn't even have a family member in the home.

    Isn't our legal system wonderful? The only people who made money on that lawsuit were the lawyers.

    Would seem to me that the lawsuit would be thrown out as the woman would have no standing.

    how does anyone know if the mom "wanted" it? from link

    if the lady is not "all there" then she is being taken advantage of.

    I might have to reconsider my beaner ways, family does not believe in nursing homes, we die at home :D

    I was kind of on the side of "who cares", but you made a good point. What if the person is not all there? Many in Nursing Homes are fine, but some are there because ... well...because they are not all there. If the case is that the person is 100% in their right mind then who cares, but if they are not then it is a problem.

    It's not an issue of "believing" in Nursing Homes for many people. The years of 24/7/365 care required by many people as a result of Alzheimer's Disease, for example, is not something many families can provide. We're not talking about a terminally ill person with cancer, for example, who wishes to die at home, it is more the constant care required by many dementia patients that goes on for many years, and requires that there be someone present 24 hours a day, as the individual cannot ever be left alone because they might hurt themselves (and possibly others through fire, for example). Not all families are in the position of either having a family member present at all times, or the expense of hiring someone to fulfill that function.

    It's not the dying at home that is the issue, but the many years leading up to that eventuality.

    Please understand, I am not questioning the desirability of being cared for at home over being cared for in a Nursing Home. And your family (and cultural) tradition of dying at home is to be desired, and envied. It is, however, not always possible.

    that was the ONLY reason I objected, Seniors are taken advantage of all the time, http://www.ftc.gov/news-events/pres...arketing-scam-defrauded-us-seniors-others-out they are pretty vulnerable.

    ----------

    I completely understand that, mom has the beginnings of Alzheimers, we are lucky I have 2 sisters & one brother who CAN care for her 24/7, mom is 92 Y/O, she still smokes like there is no tomorrow but her mind is going :(

    I'm very sorry to hear about you mom. I'm also very happy for her that she will be able to be cared for at home. Nursing Homes are a necessity for many...but far from the ideal solution, and not a place that I would want to end up.

    If your mom made it to 92...aside from the possible issue of fire caused by her smoking and possibly putting a lit cigarette down in the wrong place...the hell with it! Let her enjoy her cigarettes (sorry for the second hand smoke)!

    When my mom was about 95, it drove me nuts that her doc was giving her grief about her cholesterol level and telling her to cut down on problematic foods. What crap! If I make it to 95, not only will I eat whatever the hell I want, I will smoke, drink, and do heroin if I want!:D
