Is this study a surprise to you?

There is a grand waste of money. 
Two in 5 nursing home residents depressed: study"Almost half of Canadian seniors living in nursing homes and retirement homes are trying to cope with depression, new research finds. And many are suffering without the help they need."

I knew this. You only have to walk down the corridors. They are rendered either mobile or incontinent, in order to qualify for LTC, you need a certain level of nursing care needs. It is better than rotting at home, lonely, alone, unable to fill your daily (ADL) or weekly (IADL) needs, or demanding so much of caregivers (statistically daughters) who then burn out.
