In a recent PBS FRONTLINE documentary, “Life and Death in Assisted Living”, a very grim picture was painted of the growing assisted living industry. In our next “Issues in Aging” seminar on Tuesday, December 3, we will be discussing the program and the lessons we can learn when looking for alternate housing for ourselves or our loved ones.
Forrest Rice has added the 60 minute video of this FRONTLINE presentation to the CUMC library. You may want to take time to watch it because, although it focuses primarily on Emeritus and their facilities, many important points are discussed.
Sylvia Kupferer, a member of our Parish Nurse Team, will be leading the discussion and sharing information about how you can find out more about our local assisted living facilities.
