My 70th birthday was one of the most memorable and happy birthdays of my life. I was very happy because all around me were my children, grandchildren and relatives. Everything went quite well and in a warm atmosphere.

Days later, my daughter-in-law and my son talked to me and said that they decided to take me to a nursing home. I was in shock. They told me that with that step they thought about me, that I wouldn’t get bored, I would communicate with my peers and so on.

I was very sad because I could expect such a step from my daughter-in-law, but never from my son. Tears fell from my eyes. I just packed my things and left the house. In fact, this was a long-planned step, that’s why they decided to celebrate my birthday very well, to make me happy, so that after a few days they would take me to a nursing home.
