Nursing Home neglect seems to be on the rise sad to say. Here in Kentucky we have a few Homes that are either under investigation or have been closed due to neglect perpetrated on its elderly patients. This makes me so mad because like children the elderly count on us to protect them. I know many people in my age bracket are at a point where they are either having to think about placing their elderly parents in a home or have already done so.
In the news today at Google News, I read about a case involving the family of a man who died while in the care of a Nursing Home. It is not right that a family should have to go the legal route to get satisfaction for such a terrible event, but at least the law does protect us and it gives us this way to make sure these nursing homes do not take another family member away from another family.
Sometimes in today's economy we can not help that this is a choice we have to make. If you have a job or two to do, children that also need your time and care then this choice is one that is not one made lightly but made with the best interests of all concerned.
So when you take your elderly family member to a home, you trust that they are licenced and will take the very best care of your family member. Sadly, this has not been the case with some Nursing homes. If you have a elderly Family member involved in a illinois nursing home neglect issue please refer to

The bottom line is this, the elderly are to be cared for, not ignored and treated like animals. They are the reason we are who were are today. My Great Grandfather lived until he was 99 , one month from being 100. He along with many of my elderly family members were a wealth of info for me, they shaped who I wanted to become, and they gave their all to bring our families into the world as good people. We owe them so much, the least we can do is make sure they receive the best of care in the twilight years of their lives.
