I disagree with the whole concept of nursing homes and “facilities” as a way to help people who “can’t do for themselves”. However, if you’re going to to take on the task, for God’s sake do it properly. You take people who have difficulty fending for themselves, you put them into a place where they are even more dependent, and then when things go to Hell, as they do, it all turns out much worse. Exactly how is this so much better than people falling now and then and breaking a hip, in their own homes?
