Ben Friedman Toronto father and grandfather had a nursing home in the Los Angeles area when he was just a boy. Friedman’s father was a director and had a very close relationship with his son at the beginning of his life that came directly from the time they spent together in the family’s long-term care unit.
Friedman’s father died at a very young age, and his grandfather could not run a day-care center without his son as a colleague. Although Friedman may have wanted nothing more than to replace his father and act as a companion to his grandfather, holding a long-term care facility near him, he was not old enough to assume that kind of responsibility. His grandfather eventually sold the nursing home.
