If your loved one or you are physically or mentally impaired and fortunate enough to receive care from a group home or assisted living facility, there are pros and cons to such an arrangement. Not being able to live independently can be depressing and tough to accept for those who have been independent and self-sufficient in their lives. However, to have the opportunity to be cared for in a controlled, comfortable and caring setting is a privilege for which we should be grateful. Not everyone who needs assisted living care can always get it. But when the very caregivers who are responsible for our well-being, and the other residents in a group home or assisted living facility abuse us or our loved ones, it is often a traumatic experience resulting in a feeling of helplessness and powerlessness.
