The Harsh Realities of Long Term Care Facilities

  1. The Harsh Realities of Long Term Care Facilities Passionate World Talk Radio 50:04

Susie also talked about her new documentary, “No Country For Old People,” which explores the conditions in nursing homes and the treatment of the elderly. The inspiration for this eye-opening documentary came from Susie’s and her mom’s experiences during the last six months of her mom’s life in a five-star long-term care facility. I am honored to be part of this remarkable documentary.

We delved into issues such as short staffing, high employee turnover rates, and the urgent need for the healthcare system to change its approach to treating the elderly, especially those with dementia and cognitive disabilities. Susie mentioned that 200,000 people in care facilities died during the first six months of the pandemic. She detailed how her mom developed a stage 4 bedsore and the terrible conditions and treatment her mom endured. Susie’s mother had Alzheimer’s for 16 years.
