Protect Loved Ones from Nursing Home Abuse
All of us want the best care possible for the elderly in our lives. When it comes time to choose nursing home, assisted living or in-home care, the last thing you want to think about is that anyone responsible for these vunerable adults might abuse or neglect them.

- Factors to consider when choosing a care facility
