Must Read: CNN Report on Abuse in Nursing Homes
The decision to place a parent, grandparent, or other loved one in a nursing home or other care facility is often fraught with reasonable concerns. While on the one hand, the regular care, supervision, and medical attention is often more than you can personally provide, you also may fear that the staff may not give them the love and attention they deserve. Even worse than the fears of neglect are the fears of abuse at the hands of the people who are supposed to be helping your loved one.
In a new CNN investigation, the news outlet examines some real-life cases of abuse that have become horrifyingly common. Read the CNN report here, and if you suspect that your loved one has suffered similar abuse, you do not have to stand idly by.
