Dear Senator Roger Wicker: I am writing on behalf of Adams County Nursing Homes, to ask for your help with the vulnerable people in the nursing homes in our small community. These are our sisters, brothers, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, neighbors, and family friends. Nursing homes have been proven to help the elderly. However, nowadays nursing homes happen to be more of a problem for the elderly patients. Instead of being cared for, numerous nursing home residents are faced with painful conditions. I have become increasingly disappointed. They come to nursing homes whether it is voluntary or involuntary, in need of help. Too often what they get is insufficient staff to help them. As a result, God forsaking issues such as: weight loss, incontinence, malnourishment, injuries, and painful bedsores have plagued them. Common causes of injuries in nursing homes patients is falling. Staff is there to supervise and help make sure their basic needs such as eating, bathing, and going to the bathroom are met. Unfortunately, this is impossible in some nursing homes where staffing is insufficient.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
