Astonishing answers to unspoken questions revealed!
Elderly care is a very secret business nowadays. How well - and how poorly - we treat our elderly, our mothers and fathers and relatives, is not something that is often talked about. We'd like to think that our relatives are well-taken care of in the retirement homes we ship them off to, but sometimes that's not the case. Few Americans are aware of the abuse that is rampant in some retirement and convalescent homes. The abusers are their so-called "caregivers," who pledge their lives to give their patients comfort in the last few years or months of their lives. America needs to be exposed to these well-kept secrets.
