Very recently, the family of a St Louis area nursing home resident filed suit in court on behalf of an elderly grandmother. The allegations are beyond startling: the 84 year old resident had bruising suggestive of having been raped. LINK
Moreover, there are fully 1 million seniors over the age of 65 in Missouri, creating a large demand for these nursing home facilities. It’s estimated that a decade from now, 1 in 5 Missouri residents will be seniors. LINK
