Nursing Home Staff Give Urine as Drink, Chili as Food to Elderly Residents

In several places across the world, children put their elderly parents in nursing home where they can be cared for better by caregivers and staff who could meet the difficult demands in geriatric care. Sadly, not all nursing homes provide a great home for their elderly residents.

In Seremban, Malaysia, a nursing home was reported for its treatment of the elderly residents under their care. According to Facebook account Cik Pah Cik Ton, the families of these elderly residents are paying food money for the nursing home staff to take care of them; however, the old ones are suffering there.

The staff of the care home are believed to be all in their 20s and are not really greatly concerned about their elderly wards. The old people are prohibited from socializing with each other. They are also being starved, with chili sometimes given to them as food.

What’s worse, the elderly residents are served urine as their drink. When they complain, the elderly residents are simply mocked by the staff.

One video originally posted by Cik Pah Cik Ton shows a younger woman, believed to be a staff at the nursing, as she mocked an elderly lady with boxing moves. The elderly woman was not pleased and tried to hit back, but she was too old and too frail to really reach the younger woman or hit her hard enough for it to hurt.

Poor old lady…

Watch this video that would surely make your blood boil:

What is a Nursing Home?

A nursing home is a private facility that provides residential accommodations with healthcare, particularly for the elderly. Due to the age and nature of the residents living in a nursing home, nursing care is provided around the clock.

Many nursing homes encourage socialization among its residents as psychologists believe this will have a better effect on everyone. Some nursing homes are so advanced and luxurious that the elderly patients have individual houses and live in a simulated community, complete with its own grocery store, cinema, social hall, bank, and other facilities.
