right on target

The comments above are right on target! NC DSS isn't providing good oversight of these places at all - I know because I work in one. Alzheimer's and dementia patients need skilled nursing where their needs can be met. Memory care units aren't simply old folks with loss of memory - they have residents with severe behaviorial issues, and many are heavy care - needing to be fed, changed, etc. This is getting worse due to people living longer. DSS doesn't care a hoot about safety of these folks. Someone should start a blog where people can place comments about Assisted Living/Dementia Care Unit where the truth about these places would be revealed. Disgusting and a sad commentary on how we care for our elderly.
