Daughter shares the struggle she faced while her elderly mother was in a care center during COVID-19 pandemic
A family is sharing their struggle as an example of how hard it can be to care for an elderly family member in the middle of a pandemic. Her belief is that her mother became a side effect of overworked and waning staff because of COVID-19. When Bugdalski-Stutrud moved her mother to a second care center -- the same thing happened. Melissa Samuel is the President and CEO of the Health Care Association of Michigan, the industry associated for care centers and nursing homes. She believes that while the nursing home and skilled care industry has been hit hard by COVID-19, its not fair or reasonable to paint all care centers with the same broad brush.
