Podcast: How to Advocate for a Loved One Labeled “A Bad Fit.”

CANHR Staff Attorney Tony Chicotel is featured on a new podcast from the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care discussing long term care facility residents who are labeled “a bad fit.” Residents and their advocates often feel shame and impotence about dementia-related behaviors and are hesitant to address the failures in care that cause such behaviors.  In the podcast, Tony talks about raising expectations for dementia care and exercising residents’ rights to care that maximizes their comfort and quality of life.  The podcast is part of a series to help people pursue good long term care.
