Nursing Home Abuse Guide.org
Nursing home abuse is a very difficult issue to face. Existing in many forms, many of which are not evident by clear physical signs, it is a problem with which our society is far too familiar. This website is very informative about the issue and has specific quality evaluation data for nursing homes in many states. The link is available on their website, or you can go directly to

This newsletter is sent out about every 2-3 weeks. It includes listings of the upcoming activities that the SRSEA has scheduled and some of the discount offerings available to SRSEA members. When Ben sends the SRSEA News to this distribution, he removes all of the attachments to reduce the size of the message. He also "bcc's" the distribution so that your e-mail address is not seen by the others on the list.
