Foundation Aiding the Elderly (FATE) is a Sacramento, California based 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation whose objective is to serve as a voice for patients and to bring about national reforms and enforcement of the laws governing the nursing home industry and its regulatory agencies in order to assure proper care, civil rights and meaningful, dignified life for the elderly in long-term care facilities.

FATE’s Mission is to assure our elders are treated with care, dignity and the utmost respect during their final years when they can no longer take care of themselves.

Nursing Home Understaffing   http://www.nursinghomeabuseguide.org/neglect/understaffing
One underlying cause of elder abuse and neglect that affects nursing homes all across the country is the issue of understaffing. When nursing facilities do not have enough staff to give each patient adequate attention, it leads to mistakes and neglect. At the same time, when staff is extremely overworked and stressed, there is a greater risk that they will commit abusive acts out of frustration.

Understaffing is a serious issue that has plagued nursing homes for decades, and more than 90% of nursing homes are currently understaffed. Studies have proven that residents who live in understaffed nursing homes are at a greater risk of malnutrition, weight loss, bedsores, dehydration, infections, and pneumonia. Families of elderly patients are increasingly noticing this problem and are starting to hold nursing homes responsible for the abuses that occur as a result.

Florida Senate Bills for Nursing Home Improvements that have DIED in the Senate! Who Would Be AGAINST Improving Quality of Care & Rights of the Elderly in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities? This is a DISGRACE To The HUMAN Race! The Elderly are getting KICKED to the CURB once AGAIN! Totally UNJUST & INHUMANE… Bring back the Dignity and Respect for the Elderly where it belongs! OUR AGES DON’T STOP HERE! The CLOCK Keeps TICKING! All the Elderly were once our ages. NOT A PRETTY PICTURE OUT THERE! What are we going to do about it? Who’s going to STAND UP and SPEAK OUT for all of us when we become the Elderly if God is Willing? Doesn’t look promising. These changes are for now and everyone’s futures.. We never know what the future brings.. or do we?
