Lenora Cline, 88, has lived in a nursing home for years. She has Alzheimer’s disease. Laurel Cline, her daughter, visits her twice a day and assists staff with the care-taking, fearing that otherwise, with the shortage of staff, her mother will not be turned, fed, or changed. She had to persuade the facility to discontinue antipsychotic medications. Before successfully objecting to their use, Ms. Cline said, “Every little thing, they want to put you on psych meds.” Los Angeles, California, August 2017.
