Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
Elder abuse in our society is growing rapidly
Each Year thousands of Americans are dying and/or becomming seriously ill as a result of neglect in our nursing homes and as baby boomers age in America; unfortunatly the population of nursing homes will rise rapidly. Approximatly 1,000,000 elderly Americans are victimized each year.Even more disturbing is the fact that Well over half of these incidents are associated with nursing homes.
From one end of the country to the other nursing home prices range from $4,000 to $6,000 per month. A very hefty price for our taxpayers. Many are paid for with our Medicare and Medicaid funds. In Short, Our tax dollars!
At these prices we as American taxpayers have the right to demand only the best care for our elderly citizens. Our mothers, our fathers, aunts, uncles, cousins. To put it simply, our families.
After all any of us could end up needing nursing care one day. If things don't change for the better and quickly - the only thing that will change is who these things are happening to. it will no longer be our families. Their victimization will have long passed; as our generation ages the fact is, It could very well could be you!
