Elders and Third World Countries


Recently the state mandated the closure of our only elder care facility here in Key West, Florida due to allegations and substandard care. In such a rich county where tourist dollars roll in un abated we wondered how the poorer third world country were doing with such a delicate task and did an in depth investigation into elder care in a third world country facility . We brought video camera, notebook and interviewed staff members as as well as resident members.

Thanks for publishing your investigation Ray!
"Looks like I know where I want to be when I need elder care, either with you and Judy, or in a center for the elderly in the Dominican Republic!"
Take care folks,
