Is It the Right Time?  The Nursing Home Decision

This follow-up film to More Than a Thousand Tomorrows (the story of Betty and Everett Jordan's struggle with Alzheimer's Disease) deals with the tough decision of nursing home placement, and how the Jordan family struggled with that decision. In this DVD, Is it the Right Time? The Nursing Home Decision, several of Everett and Betty's children participate in a social worker-facilitated discussion of how that decision was made and how the communication regarding the decision might have been better handled. Their frank and honest questions and answers shed light on the importance of keeping open the lines of family communication around the timing of this very emotional and difficult decision.
