NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

“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.
