Author Allison True shines a light on the dark side of senior care in new book

"Nothing but the Truth" by Allison True

This is the story of a nursing home that ate its employees. The good ones that is. This was a reflection of the culture of the community.

As family members age, there might come a time when the idea of assisted living becomes a necessary conversation. On the outside, these facilities appear to be a careful, kind option for senior loved ones. However, Allison True offers an inside look into the often over looked dark side of senior care.

Allison True, author of “Nothing But the Truth,” has a passion to change the way nursing homes treat their patients and their employees. With 16 years of experience as a Nursing Home Administrator, and experiencing the injustices first hand, True is uniquely qualified to offer the public insight into the business.

“It has always been my motto to do the right thing no matter what. Following that motto has inherent negative side effects,” True said.

“Nothing But the Truth” recounts True’s experiences in a small-town nursing home. Here, she witnessed great injustices against good employees and lackadaisical treatment of patients. True watched as ethical oversights in the work place destroyed good people, she included.

“This is the story of a nursing home that ate its employees. The good ones that is. This was a reflection of the culture of the community,” True said.

True wishes to shed light on the often-overlooked issues within nursing home communities as a way to help others in similar situations, and improve a flawed system.
