Why are so many of America's retirement homes just plain awful?

We had one shut down in the city that had apparently received hundreds of complaints because of seniors with bed sores and bug bites, and apparently the entire building was collapsing and smelled so bad that authorities were throwing up.


How does this happen?  Why do people give so few shiz about the elderly?

    Some retirement homes are good places, where the staff really Do care. And there are still some that are not. And many times it is because they are just interested in the money; they hire untrained staff at low wages that jut don't care. And sometimes it is difficult to avoid them until it is too late.
