This is sad and dismal but has been true too many times. My nurse daughter was called into s rescue situation not too different than this...her team took over and all original staff immediately fired. Our elders deserve better. Looking forward to the next chapter.

The old are forgotten
Ignored most of the time
The have nothing until rescued
By an angel of love.

This is a sad affair that a good portion of our elderly must face as their lives come to an end.

    Yes it is definitely sad and so unnecessary.

How horrible not to know even who you are! A life of lonely confusion is worse than no life at all. Losing your brain would be worse than any other disease.

    And to be treated so brutally on top of that is just a sin as far as I am concerned. I agree, I cannot imagine anything worse.

I love this, Sasha. I feel like this old woman, in many ways. You've done a nice job exposing the way some wonderful people are treated in "facilities" of many kinds.

But who put her there? Why?

I want to know who rescued her.

Gripping.

    We never knew how she ended up there but I am just about to post part two so some of your questions will be answered. Thanks so much for the awesome 6 stars, I sincerely appreciate them.

You may not have written this from a memory of yours or even a person you know of but so many people go through and experience this everyday. Elderly abuse is a thing and something we need to be cautious of when we're putting our loved ones in places to be cared for.

    This was quite hard to write. I know several women that experience the same abuse and it just broke my heart. Thank you so much for the awesome 6 stars and I want you to know I sincerely appreciate them.

This story tugs on my heartstrings. Especially since my Aunt just passed away. They decided she needed to go into a nursing home, but she died while her name was on the waiting list. Her passing was most unexpected.

Your characters feel real. We've been fortunate to have somewhat caring and professional health care workers take care of the seniors in our family. I cringe at the care of this woman. Looking forward to part two.

One minor thing:

- "she slept in (a) unsoiled, dry bed..." - should that be an unsoiled, dry bed?

As always, excellent writing skills.

    Yes, it should be 'an'. This was quite hard to write. I know several women that experience the same abuse and it just broke my heart. I am working on Part 2 and hope to post it later today.

Hi Sasha, you're addressing a huge problem here. How can any elderly person be reduced to this kind of treatment? It frightens me to think, could that be me one day? I'm looking forward to the continuation. All the best. Ulla:)))

    People want to believe things like this do not happen but they do, far too often. This was quite hard to write. I know several women that experience the same abuse and it just broke my heart. I am working on Part 2 and hope to post it later today.

So many old folks are forced to live like this. Many of them are not as bad as their lazy caretakers claim. It's sad but true. I look forward to reading par two. Sounds like things are looking up for the old lady.

    I agree, there is nothing a caretaker could say to justify this type of treatment. Today's post should be less depressing and more uplifting.

Hi Sasha; thank you for sharing this moving and sad piece about the horrible conditions in some of these places. Your words moved well and the story was structured in such a way that the reader was taken into the old woman's world.

Well done and I look forward to tomorrow's chapter,

~patty~

You captured it totally and with words you need to be proud of because I am proud of you for writing one like this. I have seen it when I was a 'vampire' for the nursing home and went in at 3 am for the work, I cried most of the times when I left. I was eventually fired because I spoke out.
