    My mother and I went to visit my grandfather who was living in a Korean-run nursing home in Columbia, Maryland.

    Grandfather was there basically because his children couldn’t care for him in their own homes. My mom tried her best, but she could only do so much. She saw the decline first hand.

    This visit was the first time she saw him in about 6 months.
