Moving to a nursing home often improves the quality of life of senior citizens. They are well looked after there and find new social contacts. At the same time, the burden on their children involved in their care is reduced. Concerns about high costs, however, are one of the main factors that prevent many people from taking this step. It is not uncommon for children to take on the job of caring for their parents themselves, because they fear that they would have to pay a share of the nursing home costs and would not be able to afford this.
