Many care facilities are agreeing to take care of those with Alzheimer's and Dementia without having the supplies or staff to properly care for these people. This abuse is often gone unnoticed as many people suffering with Alzheimer's and Dementia are not physically able to express their pain and emotions. As a Certified Nursing Assistant, I am saddened by the state of our long-term care facilities in the United States and there needs to be changes made regarding the number of Nursing Assistants each facility is required to have working at one time to protect those suffering with these diseases.  I work in an assisted living facility and many people with an Alzheimer's and/or a Dementia diagnosis living at these facilities belong in skilled nursing facilities or nursing homes but there is little done to legally intervene and move these people to a home where they can be properly cared for.
