Scrap demeaning TV ad of life in nursing home
Have you seen the latest TV commercial for a local nursing home showcasing wheelchair races with cheering staff lining the hallways? How demeaning to portray not only our beloved relatives and friends who are unable to care for themselves at home, but also a group of inappropriately “acting” staff members!
In real life, personnel care for our elderly and infirm at any given facility, but time is spent passing medications, bathing and dressing residents, carrying out physician-prescribed medical treatments and keeping accurate, lengthy computer records. Please delete this inappropriate and insulting portrayal of reality.
