Help keep Holocaust survivors out of long-term care facilities, panelists urge Congressional lawmakersJanuary 17, 2014
Strenuous efforts should be made to provide aging Holocaust survivors with home care, because institutional settings tend to trigger post-traumatic stress disorder for this group, experts told lawmakers at a recent hearing of the Senate Special Committee on Aging.
Providers with Holocaust survivors will find special value in an upcoming hearing held by the Senate Special Committee on Aging. "Aging in comfort: Assessing the special needs of America's Holocaust survivors" is the title of the Jan. 15 hearing. It begins at 2:15 p.m. (Eastern) in Room 562 of the Dirksen Senate Building in Washington and will feature testimony from some of the nation's top experts on this caregiving challenge.
What happens when a government and society create an evil enemy of the state? They begin by calling them monsters, a drain on society that is guilty of heinous crimes, and they use the legal system and media to prosecute them publicly without due process. You have all seen the headlines about nursing homes. The TRUTH never seems to matter, only the synthetic story.
