This six-minute video is the précis version of Human Rights Watch’s 165-page report published on February 5, 2018. It confirms what many dementia care advocates and activists, and even the US government itself has known for years: there’s a drug abuse problem in the country’s long-term care industry, and elderly people who live with dementia bear the brunt of it.
And the problem isn’t confined to the United States; it’s across Canada as well. I know from personal experience.
I wonder if, like me, this video makes you ask yourself what’s wrong with this picture?
