It is sad that people live long and decent lives and then, when they can no longer care for themselves, they are abused or neglected in the very places whose role is to look after and protect them.
But it happens, and it will happen more frequently as the baby boomer generation ages and enters Georgia nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The problem is that many places put profit above patient care. Giant corporate nursing homes are being built right now to warehouse our loved ones. The huge investments involved are going not to patient care or staff training but to construction and advertising.
