The Forgotten Ones: Compassion for the Elderly

The Forgotten Ones: Compassion for the Elderly

It is a terrible state of affairs. However, not only the ones in nursing, and care homes, are abused, financally exploited and forgotten in their old age, left without resources, without visitors, or even a phone call from neighbors, asking if the elder person living next door is OK. A heartless society. eb

It's so true that people in facilities soon become forgotten.

Look to 'The Forgotten Ones' for wonderful ideas on how to help, not to mention photographic portraits that won't let you forget.
