Loving son

Dear Queenie,

My elderly father is in an old people’s nursing home and I have seen how the people who work there treat him. They seem to think because he is very old he must be senile. He isn’t, he is only in the home because of his physical ailments that are too much for me to handle.

It’s hard for him to be there after all the years he spent taking care of other people. At least they should treat him with the dignity he deserves.

Queenie, is there anything I can do about this?—Loving son

Dear Son,

You can talk to the management of the facility about your complaints. It is possible that many of the people working there are volunteers who have not been properly or professionally trained for the work they have to do. It is very hard work and the place may not have enough staff.
