My son told me that all of the staff, except for a caretaker, leave the facilities at night. No one is there to supervise any troubling behavior. One of the residents is given a radio to call out in case of an emergency.
Given the age of the residents and the fact that they are not at the facility due to their outstanding judgment, it is a bit surprising that this goes on.
In all of the conversations I had with clinical director Bruce Dechert, this never came up. I hope that the information is not accurate. Otherwise Dechert was being irresponsible.
Dechert can drop us a note if there is something inaccurate about this account.
