Blogger from American Legion Magazine, Mark Seavey, discussed neglect in VA assisted living homes on the Nov. 16 edition of America’s Work Force Radio.
Seavey said neglect is occurring in VA homes all across the country, as many VA assisted living homes are receiving failing grades by the VA’s own ranking system for various reasons including, nurses sleeping on the job, providing less assistance than required and not repairing what he called atrocious living conditions. Seavey spoke about a rehabilitation program called Merging Vets and Players (MVP), where athletes help veterans cope with PTSD through various forms of workouts and talking about their problems.
Norm Wernet, Ohio President of the Alliance for Retired Americans, spoke about midterm election results. He believed the outcome had the potential to affect social security and pension plans. Wernet talked about Medicare expansion and the need to strengthen social security benefits to ensure people can retire comfortably and with dignity.
AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc discussed how gerrymandered legislative districts in Ohio affect elections. He also talked about rank choice voting and the benefits that come with it.
