Choosing a nursing home for your loved one is no joke. Everyone deserves quality healthcare no matter there financial status. In the United States their are plenty of descent facilities, but some do fall short. Your loved one deserves the best. Make sure to visit your family in the nursing homes, and make sure they are receiving proper care. If you feel like your loved one is being treated like the cartoon above, speak up and contact authority. I’m not the only one in the world that cares about the well being of the elderly.

The Sadness Brought on by Some Nursing Homes

Quenching the Thirst

18 Feb

I am an open cup constantly yearning to be filled with knowledge, creativity, and passion. As I am filled by life and by the Lord, I can pour into my community providing a better place for us to live, work, and grow. Two years ago I began volunteering at an assisted living and dementia facility, where I listened and recorded patients life stories. I was able to build a lasting relationship with the elderly patients, a relationship that is still maintained by weekly calls. I learned from this experience that the elderly have a story that needs to be told, and that the elderly have a voice that needs to be heard on the local, state, and federal levels:  I want to be that voice for them. One way I will carry this out is by pursuing a career in Gerontology.

Therefore, my vision is to develop programs that will enhance the quality of life for the elderly as they matriculate. As individual ages, his or her quality of care is often placed on the rear burner, but my agenda is to make sure that their care is always a priority. The Life expectancy of the elderly has increased, and the baby-boomer generation is approaching sixty-five. Due to the size of this generation, there is a need for elderly healthcare reform. The elderly find solace in knowing that someone cares about them. I want to be one of the leading advocates to demonstrate our care, financial support, and respect for a group of people who has sewn so much into our communities. I want to fully understand the complexities of elderly care and aging. I will present ideas to those who are making decisions about the elderly care.

Claflin University will help me continue to hone the skills needed to be a successful gerontologist. Upon graduation, I will continue to work for the well-being of our most experienced citizens.  My thirst will not be quenched until I have made an impact in the field of Gerontology.
