Answering A Question/Prompt

I recently came across the question whether it’s morally wrong to not visit a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s in a nursing home, and essentially what the point OF visiting would be.

Visiting a loved one in mental decline could be beneficial to them. For example, it could lift their mood, however temporarily, just knowing SOMEONE cares enough to visit.

I remember as a young child sometimes visiting a local nursing home in my hometown at the time on Sundays to sing for the residents, and seeing their faces light up was beautiful.

As for morality, dropping someone you profess to Love off at a nursing home & then essentially acting as if they’re dead to you WOULD be morally repugnant.
