Does Race Impact Our Care For The Elderly In Nursing Homes?
 
Researchers at Temple University in Philadelphia, and Brown University in Providence, R.I., analyzed the quality and racial makeup of nursing homes.

What they found was distressing.

It is all about money. Money gets one into the best care there is. Poor people have to go to state run or low budget facilities. Yes there is a major difference depending on where you children choose to send you. They take you to lunch one day and you never leave. :(

Isaac, you would be correct. It's all about what can be afforded for you when the home is chosen. Sad, but true. Also, the bump sticker is true...

Be nice to your children. They'l be picking your nursing home!

Why is that sad? That's the way it should be, that's the best possible system.
