As our population continues to age, more of us will one day need to face the possibility of nursing home care for ourselves or a loved one.
That decision is far too important to be left to chance and urgency does not allow us the luxury of learning by trial and error. Research writer William Dorich found this out the hard way when dealing with his own family experience with nursing home care. In this new eBook The Nursing Home Crisis William Dorich sheds valuable light and shocking detail on the problems of physical and sexual abuse as well as neglect and medical malpractice in some nursing homes today. William Dorich provides his readers with the tools they need to find and evaluate a good nursing home for themselves or a loved one.
While this book graphically exposes the Good, the Bad and the Terrible in nursing home care today it also brings a clear understanding about the rights of the patient and how to wisely spend down assets. This book will also show you how to apply for Social Security and Medi-Care benefits while still protecting the rights of your loved one. This book is an important addition to any home research library and an especially valuable tool for anyone facing nursing home decisions.
