“Life and Death in Assisted Living”

Posted By

The PBS Frontline/ProPublica program, “Life and Death in Assisted Living,” left me numb, angry, and worried.

As the son of parents whom we moved into an “assisted living” facility a year ago, my eyes have been opened to what you don’t get for your investment.

This program makes clear:

  • These are not health care facilities.
  • It’s essentially an expensive real estate industry.
  • It’s an industry that’s largely unregulated.
  • We were – as I suspect many people are – naive about what “assisted living” really means.

I urge you to watch, and to join in the discussion.

Watch Life and Death in Assisted Living on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.
