With us this morning is Fernando gets here is whose health care ethics consultant and he's a coauthor of guardianship reality who's looking out for America's abandoned abused and neglected children and elderly thank you for being with us this morning we appreciate your time. Yeah it is a an alarming statistic no money out over the past couple years I've had experience with nursing home with my mother. And there are there a lot of criticism you can bring to them but just how how bad is a situation you think. Well. And our book we did tell lid on guardianship reality but it's it's ramped and the reason why is because that kind of consumer. Doesn't have all the information on the court has the questions. That they need testing facilities could there not been a volunteer. Any information and in our book we come over. Not only tell you what to ask for but how to do it. No end in caring in the bill from looking up for my late mother's needs. My brother Jerry is a retired EMTs so he knew some pretty good questions to ask those folks at the home. With.

Visa problems or or or the care for our elderly. And that we know that I can tell you that if you don't have the money it's going to be a tough call it's very expensive to get it someone an elder health care. You have to employ that averages anywhere from eight to 101000 dollars per month to be in a nursing home care and we have quite a few people who are what they called Medicaid patients who qualified for. Medicaid and that's one of the questions that we cover is that. Do you should ask of armed belt eradicated the mother of father order. Our sister brother should be asking these facilities is how many many key this do you have because that's a good indication of the quality of care the local will get. That is a good really a good because I I happen to ask that question early on in the game. And got an answer that I didn't wanna hear so all yeah I'll be prepared and know the right questions and right. Yes no we and our book we covered yet you don't lose a lot of states have a problem.
