Hospitalizing Parents for the Holidays

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
this report on Kikar is weird, but might even be brilliant!
According to the report, there has been an uptick in the number of people hospitalizing their elderly parents, who need care, just for the holidays as they are too difficult to deal with and provide the necessary care over the holidays. This is referring specifically to people who normally are caring for their elderly parents, but it just becomes too difficult during holiday season, so they hospitalize them instead. Obviously the elderly parents qualify for hospitalization and need to medical care, but usually the kids take care of them, perhaps with an on-call nurse or perhaps not, but it just becomes too difficult during the holidays.
This is a brilliant solution. I am going to look more into this option... I guess I'll find out firsthand if my parents read this or not... :-)
