To some, this will go unread because our elders are often overlooked, but don’t you ever wonder who’s actually taking care of the people who once took care of us?
The lack of responsibility in many nursing home facilities is going unrecognized because not only are some elders not able to speak for themselves, but these places do not want to lose business either. This is unfair and by doing research, I discovered that this has been a problem for years.
I cannot stress this idea of getting help and extending an extra hand enough, and to have someone use their leisure time wisely would be greatly appreciated. I have already taken initiative to join the volunteering staff at the Agape Senior in Conway.
You can help too!
