Nursing home are often sad places. Firstly, they are frequently located in ugly old building unfit for anyone. For example, I always see some news is talk about nursing home. There are such bad places also has bad environment. Some rooms are very dark there is no sunshine. Secondly, the people there are lonely and bored. For example, in the nursing home old people cannot live with their family and they cannot talk with their friend face to face. They cannot do something they want, they doing same thing every day. Finally, what’s more, they’re sometimes treated badly by the people who run the homes. For example, nursing cost much money but they give the cheap meal for people. The owner wants save money for get more benefit so maybe the owner uses the bad equipment for people. It’s a shame something better can’t be done for the elderly.
