The Truth Revealed

This is the most succint description of the problems in Assisted Living I have ever read. Not just in NC but across the country.DSS isn't providing ANY oversight that I can see and I work in one of these facilities. Complaints ALWAYS turn out "unfounded." What does it take? Even death is overlooked. Alzheimer's and other memory care residents should be under the care of a skilled nursing facility who has trained staff to deal with high acuity. If people really knew how incapable assisted living staff are in caring for their loved ones they they would be horrified. Someone needs to break this story and bring it to the forefront - not just in NC but across the country. The big Assisted Living chains don't give a hoot about their patients - don't believe ANYTHING they provide to you. They are out to make money. Many of the directors who run these places are uneducated, untrained and simply have a NC Administrators License which is a joke. I also agree that a blog should be started where people can comment on the care at Assisted Living facilities - it would really open a lot of eyes!
