The Best Place No One Wants to Go To

I call it, "the best place no one wants to go to." I'm speaking of nursing homes.

Little River is fortunate to have one of the better nursing homes in Kansas with Sandstone Heights Nursing Home.

But that doesn't make it any easier to go and live there when you can no longer stay in your own place.

You lose your independence. You lose your privacy. Sometimes you lose your mind.

But one thing you do retain is your dignity.

Just because you can't walk like you used to, or talk like you used to, or take your medicine like you used to, nursing homes testify to the fact that life--at all stages--is sacred.
