The Elderly are mentally, physical, sexually and abused daily by people they love the most.

Nursing is the Last Stop

In today's society, the elderly are forgotten and neglected by the ones they love most. Most of the elderly don't want to be a burden to there love ones, so they fend for themselves. Some are abused mentally and physically and is afraid to tell anyone out of shame and embarrassment

Nursing Homes In Poor Neighborhoods

Nursing homes in poor neighborhoods are unstaffed and are not able to provide probable care for patients. Some patients are neglected daily because some of the staff who don't seen to care. When families put their love ones in nursing homes for their safety because they can't care for themselves.

When A parent is taken to a Nursing home the sole responsible lives on nursing home and their caretakers. Three months ago I was sent to a nursing home for physical therapy, I never thought I would endure such rudeness from some of the caretakers. I watch them cater to some of the patient and was mean to others.

I saw patients who was unable to walk not adequately taken care of, when it came to changing their clothing. They was washed early in the morning and sat all day in wet clothes until it was to go to bed at night. Some time they would have accidents in there clothes with the spill of water running across the floor.

Patients would ring their bed side buzzer at times it took hours for a care taker to come to see what was wrong. When some finally showed up to turn the buzzer, off they showed no companion. I heard some of the caretaker laughing and making fun of some of the patients who cried out for help.

Golden years

At times most of us take the elderly forgranted.After years of preparing for the years of retirement relaxation and contentment, they are placed in nursing homes by the ones they love. Not all the elderly are happy being placed in long-term nursing home they want to be with their families and friends. My stay in a nursing home was short-term but, I got to know a few of the patients.

I don't deserve to be here one of the patient said to me, I worked all my life for my family and they stick me in a place like this. I am a old woman now, I am a burden to them instead of caring for me they dump me off on people who don't know me. I see my family once a year and that's Christmas she cried, they don't care. All us old folks was put here to die she said because I have nothing else left.
