When it comes to choosing a nursing home, assisted-living, or retirement home for your elderly parent, the more you learn about the facility the better. If you do not screen homes carefully, your loved one could find her or himself living in a place where the most basic of needs are not met.
Nursing home abuse might seem like an issue that occurs only rarely. However, it is shockingly prevalent.
