Hi my om is in a nursing home and since she's been there she keeps losing things the 2 most important things so far is her dentures and I never found her dentures and she's not able to get another set with her mind the way it is. Now her eyeglasses. There are often times when I go she doesn't have her glasses on (and she has very bad eyes) and I'll ask the nurses or aides if mom has had her glasses on during the day and they say "I don't know or they will have them at their desk and get them out when I ask about them or I'll go to her room and find them still in the drawer from that morning or if I haven't been there in a day or 2. I'm wondering why haven't they put her glasses on? I go ahead and clean them and put them on her and just tell the aides if you see her without them would you please get them for her because without them she can't see very well, they of course they say yes and before you know it she's like that again. Now when I went to see her yesterday they couldn't be found and bless her heart she's going up and down the hall tied in a chair either squinting or just moving along all blurred eyed, I don't even know how she stands it, when I speak to her she squints and answers the best she can, you'd think she would be crying or really agrivated but she just goes on( how I pray for her strength)not knowing she ever had any in the first place. Does any one have any ideas how I can do more to see she has her glasses next time? That is if she can even do an eye exam now. I thought about trying to see if the optomatrist keeps a record on the last glasses made. Does anyone know just how long they keep records if they do keep them? I appreciate all replys. Thanks

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
