The Texas Retired Teachers Association’s (TRTA) Executive Director Tim Lee will host a Facebook Live event discussing the safety of elders in nursing homes during the pandemic. He will be joined by Brian Lee, the Executive Director of Families for Better Care. Brian Lee is Tim Lee’s brother, and he’s considered one of the nation’s leading experts on elder care.
We hope you are able to join us this Friday, May 1 at 1:00 p.m. for this important event. The video will be available on TRTA’s Facebook page. You don’t need to have a Facebook account to view the video. The video will also be recorded and available in the videos section of TRTA’s Facebook page.
Brian’s organization, Families for Better Care, is a national watchdog for the long-term care system on behalf of residents and families. You can learn more about Families for Better Care, including national nursing home report cards, here.
According to the Washington Post, “more than a fifth of the 55,000 known covid-19 deaths in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other elder care facilities.” Families for Better Care is very engaged in helping address concerns in our nation’s long-term care facilities and nursing homes during these extremely difficult and uncertain times.
