While it may not always be an ideal solution, people in their old age are sometimes placed in long-term care facilities. Nursing homes, or convalescent homes, are care centres where the elderly and infirm are placed for round-the-clock caretaking. There are many reasons for placing the elderly in nursing homes—there may be technology available that is necessary for specific conditions, or the family unit may not be able to take care of the person on their own.
When elderly family members are placed in long-term care, it is important for them to know that you love and care for them. It is not always possible to be physically present with them, but thankfully FreeConference.com—the Internet’s best free video conferencing software—has those distances covered.
