Zomby House-Hell for the sentient old

Recently, a friend and I helped retrieve someone from a care home. It was clean, in sunny surroundings, nicely kept and had pleasant and efficient staff.

It was a place for the living dead. Most of the patients were aged dementia sufferers in advanced stages of decrepitude. They drooled or slumped, unseeing in front of blaring TVs. Some shouted out unintelligably and at random. 

Amongst this horror, were only two sentient patients. For them it was a living hell. 

If I cannot end my life legally or illegally before ending in such a place of horrors, I rely on friends and family to make suitable arrangements.
