In response to Curt Reese's letter about the veterans' nursing home, I was also wondering about Sen. Gary Kubly and which site he was going to pursue for a veterans' nursing home. I would really like to see a veterans' nursing home built.
April of 2000 saw my dad becoming a resident of the Luverne veterans' nursing home. What a wonderful place!
When Dad became ill and was placed in hospice, I was contacted by the social worker that we could place him in a local nursing home closer to the family.
First of all, I said no, as Luverne had been his home soon to eight years that April.
Second, we have had a relative in a local nursing home and all I can say is that the room was so depressing, compared to Dad's room in the veterans' home.
In closing, I would again choose the Luverne veterans nursing home over a local one.
