Short Description: 
The treatment of elders in nursing homes

How are our elders treated in nursing homes? Are powerful anti-psychotic medications being used for treatment, or for social control? Does living in a nursing home promote mental health -- or make it worse? Carole Hayes-Collier, psychiatric abuse survivor and longtime activist with the Grey Panthers, discusses her work to empower people as we age.
