In brief: Therem is a con

When the nursing home gathers residents like that, for only part of the day, there is no problem, but when they are there all day, it means they are not getting individualized or group attention and this can cause behaviors, not prevent them. You want a nh that has activities and has some individual or group activities for some portion of the day.
