Is Home for the Aged a Better Option? - Review based on Springhill Groups, Yay or Nay?
In a fast phase world like ours, finding time for fun and leisure is hard and finding time for family is harder. Sometimes we are left with no choice. We are forced to leave our elderly family
members in a nursing home or more popular as home for the aged.
Elderly has a special healthcare although facilities like home for the aged are designed to take care of them they are often lacking human resources and other needs of these retirees. A sad truth
is some facilities have no mercy on their patients. Sometimes they overmedicate them and let them lay in their beds for hours and even days. They lack people to attend to the elderly so they had
to choose over feeding them and bathing them. They feed them and who knows how and what, and then they will let them stay in soiled clothes and beds. Those were just samples. But not every
home is like that, there are homes where they will take care of the elderly and makes sure that they are well feed and well medicated.
How is home for the aged can do good for our elderly?
