Assisted Living Tidbits
As we, or our loved ones get older, sometimes the ability, and desire to be assertive have become a thing of the past. Many seniors, due to conditions such as Alzheimer's or other dementias simply don't know how to ask for what they need - or have lost the ability to 'stand their ground.'
This is an unfortunate reality for many seniors - especially since it is at a time in life where there might not be strong family support - or perhaps a spouse that is still living and healthy to act as your "voice" if you have lost yours...
Perhaps this is one reason that seniors can be easy targets for people with less than honorable intentions - such as assisted living facilities with marginal or bad track records, or caregivers who may be less than scrupulous with the belongings of the person under their care.
This is all why we wrote our article about being an assertive senior - with some tips on how to be assertive, or to find a family member or friend to speak and act on your behalf.
