I started this blog to speak up for my grandmother. But there are issues involved here that go beyond just my family. At some point in everyone’s lives, the care of the elderly is a matter that will impact you personally. It may be as a caregiver for a parent or other older relative, or as an older person needing care yourself, should you live to reach that age.
How would you want the people you love to be treated? How would you like to be treated yourself?
If your answer is, with compassion and dignity, then please join me in speaking up against elder abuse, not just for my grandmother, but vulnerable elders everywhere. Start this conversation among your own families. Share your comments and feedback here, or on any of the posts. Spread this message wherever you can. Let’s join the growing number of voices protesting this atrocity, and maybe together we can make a real difference.
