The Health Show #1103
http://www.healthshow.org/ – Okay, a quick show of hands...how many of you are looking forward to spending your senior years in a nursing home? Even if I could see you right now, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't see your hands. But millions of Americans will need nursing home care in their final days. On this week's Health Show, we'll talk to a psychologist and author about the nursing home industry and why he calls life nasty, brutish and long".
We'll also find out why managing medications is one of the most important aspects of senior care. And we'll hear from a reporter in Germany who's search for a way to feel better after a bout with the flu led her to a room full of salt.
