Senior Issues, Part 1

February 22, 2010

http://wgcu.org/blogs/gulfcoastlive/attachment/6662.ashxA south Fort Myers nursing home is under investigation for possible elder abuse.  Every year the Agency for Health Care Administration investigates hundreds of similar complaints.  In part one of our series on senior issues, we take a closer look at nursing homes and long term care facilities.  Also joining our panel is the Florida Long Term Care Ombudsman Program.  We'll discuss what people should be asking about these sorts of facilities.  We're also joined by the AARP to find more answers for seniors across the state.  We’ll try to debunk any myths as well.  And we want to hear from you…what are your personal experiences with nursing homes?
