Hi all

tuesday I helped my grandmother to move to a nursing home. I live 2 hr driving from her but I visit her twice a week. She has not been really happy about it but it was her own decision after long thoughts. I helped her and vent back today to visit her. I shoot these pics...

EDIT: I shoot these in the easter where my granny told me that she wanted to move to a nursing home

nico:

1. these are very nice shots
2. you are a wonderful person to help your grandmother and visit her twice a week from 2 hours away... how amazing
3. my mom is struggling with a similar decision for her mom (my grandmother). my nana is adamant NOT to be put in such a place, but, at 90, she desperately needs it.

a very "timely" thread for me

so very well done
nice of you to share this with us

Great that you’re visiting but sad to think we’ll all more than likely end up in one. Sort of like when we went to pre-school, remember we couldn’t wait for our parents to pick us up and take us home. Except we won’t go home, well say after the visit. Great shots!

Wonderful series, especially number six. My siblings and I had to make this difficult decision for our parents (both are deceased now). They were relatively happy and well cared for... most importantly, they were never alone, even at the end.

Nico - this is a beautiful series and you can clearly see the emotion. It is great to be able to spend so much time with a grandparent.

The b&w really drives home the emotion factor in this series. You have captured well. Nicely shot!

These turned out very well! I particularly like the one of her walking away down the hallway. I grew up visiting my great-grandmother in a nursing home, till she passed away when I was in 8th grade... if the nursing home is a very nice one, the care they receive can be wonderful.
