Recently I’ve been forced to deal with some heartbreaking issues with my Mother.
My Momma is 89 yrs young & has been very healthy, however, do to some neglect from the person (Nurse Practitioner/Dr./Wound clinic taking care of her) that has changed! However, her Cancer Dr. had switched her Wound care clinic to a new one in Kokomo! She (her wound care specialist & Care Team) have been so caring & have done amazingly!
But that is not what I am here to talk about. I saw something that has hurt my heart terribly, and that is “healthcare” with this Assisted Living, Rehab Centers, hospitals, & the lack of family/friends involved w the Elderly loved ones!
I truly understand why we are currently having a shortage in Workers, & the people who ARE there, that show up, are overworked and unappreciated.
But after my Mother left the Hospital she was placed in what I assumed was supposedly a “5 Star” rehab facility and It wasn’t!
This is now the 3rd facility plus the hospital. There she wore the same PJ’s for 9 days (she has a huge cancer mass that seeps horribly) not to mention hygiene that needed tended to daily! I literally caught the Director of nursing in a lie over those PJ’s taking 9 days to change!
I had to tell them 3 times she needed bathed (those were the only times it happened) & when I went into her room it was so dirty & stunk horribly like it had not been cleaned since the day she went in, my Mother said they rarely would ever come in the room!
What has happened to people caring for the Elderly today, do they not realize one day that they may suffer the same when they reach the “golden years of OLD”?? It is so so sad & heart wrenching! Very lonely & heartbreaking for them, in some cases traumatic
To think many gave all they had to their family to love, care for, support … all to be forgotten & not respected, not treated w dignity & so many, often mistreated as they approach the end of Life…..
The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the gray head. MISHLEI 20:29-29 את CEPHER
You shall rise up before the gray head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear your Elohiym: I am Yahuah. VAYIQRA 19:32-32 את CEPHER
REBUKE not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity. Honor widows that are widows indeed. TIMOTHEUS RI’SHON 5:1-3 את CEPHER
