I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident
My father lived in the Alzheimers care unit for many months. I stayed w my mother nearby for 3 months and went to visit and help him at least 2X day. I saw much of what went on and I was not happy and neither was my 91 year old father. I would go in to see him and his face would be in his plate of food. He was paying more than $11,000. per month yet nobody was available to help him eat ! aand he lost a great deal of weight. We hired a private R.N. to go over all of his meds and had an M.D. come in also. Aegis had him so drugged he could not function, we changed that with no help from them. They left him sitting in his wheelchair if I wasn't there. It was terribly uncomfortable, I would have to chase someone down to help get him into his comfortable recliner in his room where he could look out the window or nap. I made sure he ate well. There were some residents who were quite mean but the staff did not care, other residents needed much more help than was provided. While I was there I found another place and got him moved out, he was infinitely happier at the new place. He never fell after that because he was cared for, not left on his own. No more ambulance rides to the hospital. No more abrasions. He ate home cooked food and gained weight. He was allowed to die a natural death with dignity, not rushed to a sterile hospital.
