Should be a dozen cameras strategically placed in and around the room of every patient, in every care-home, in every country, monitoring every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day.

I just looked up Japara, and here is the opening words that describe their services...

Today, Japara is one of the largest and most respected providers of residential aged care and retirement living in Australia, and a leader in the specialist field of dementia care.

Too bad they missed the most important tidbits of all... we're in it for profit, and pay our caregivers diddly while working them to the bone. :mad:

As far as I'm concerned, care-workers should be paid a GP's salary.
