  1. Although it was extremely sad, I think it was good information for people! Many Assisted Living Facilities promise a lot, but the real care is just not there. Of course there are many good facilities, but I’m afraid this representation is very common. I really hate that staffing and care is cut, just to make more money for the corporations! So sad.

    1. HI Pat
      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I thought the piece was good, but like everything, you can’t cover all aspects. I too felt horrible for those families, but also know there is a lot of terrific care being given and some I’m sure is at Emeritus as well. Like all industries there is the good, the bad and the ugly. I hope this doesn’t scare people away from assisted livings, but makes them decide to get more educated and involved. In turn I hope all agencies take this seriously and learn from this feature to avoid similar situations.
