They are fine if the workers are honest and trustworthy. Mother has had dementia past 3 to 5 years. While I (the daughter) was deathly ill, and could not honor Mother by being her POA. , strangers crept in took over her life, got POA. and have been doing as they please. State Ombudsman told me 2 days ago that it was not in her medical records that she had been a prior patient at a lockdown dementia care facility for 2 1/2 months! The records were not there at all. I found a website at www.sacbee.com , a newspaper said elder abuse in facilities is rampant. Lawsuits have been filed, medical records are missing, bad altered, etc. This is totally frightening as this has occured in Mother's case. I reported this to elder abuse hotline, they are investigating. Meanwhile families must take great care about their loved ones,who are sufferring in facilities wherein dishonesty is rampant. This is a crisis for our dearly loved elderly are being mistreated. Who will protect them when you are not there?
