From Randy Robinson–PBS and Frontline discuss the issues in “Assisted Living”

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/life-and-death-in-assisted-living/

He was dirty and unkempt.  The family had to do his laundry and had to clean his room. He looked after a dirty old man.  Then he went wandering the facility on night.  George drank a chemical container he found and was severely injured.  He was in horrific pain and after a painful period, he died.  He suffered a horrific death the entire family saw.  For the lack of care, the Facility (Emeritus Corp), was fined $601 for creating a horrific death.

But Ermitus took in $1.6 billion in revenue in 2014.  A for profit corporation traded on Wall Street.

Sorry, I got through only half of the video.  I had to stop. It was just too digusting and deplorable that our elderly are treated insuch a manner.
