Description

Time Magazine reports on assisted-living centers, "designed to help residents with daily tasks but not to provide skilled medical care." And while these centers offer the freedom and independence nursing homes withhold, reporter Andrew Goldstein discovered that many of these centers do not uphold their expectations. Staff members many times lack basic medical knowledge, have other duties besides caring for patients and lack motivation due to low wages. Consumer advocates have tried to enhance regulation and providers have promised to improve patient care, but family members of loved ones in these centers say concerns still remain.
