I’ve seen abuse in nursing homes, but not like these girls. They are sick, and will be old some day. I bet they will be scared witless. Once, I saw a girl drop a lady from a Hoyer lift to the bed too hard. I asked her if she would put her mother in this place. She just walked away. I turned her in, but they didn’t fire her. I’ve seen them get rough with Alzheimer’s patients and gave them hell, along with reporting them. My husband has Alzheimer’s, and he will stay home until he dies, no matter how rough it gets.
“My husband has Alzheimers, and he will stay home until he dies, no matter how rough it gets.”
God Bless You. I wish you were in my family! Good luck in your journey with your husband. I hope you have some good support.
I was delivering candy and cards to a nursing home back when I was about their age, and never in a million years would I dream of doing something that appalling to helpless seniors. It’s just sick.
I’ll have to say that my father was in a nursing home for the last three weeks of his life, had advanced prostate cancer, and they hand fed him and treated him like a baby. He constantly expressed gratitude to them for everything.
I know a young nurses aide that took TOO MUCH TIME with my Dad in his what turned out to be his last days...she got in trouble for it believe it or not....
