Frontline
Life and Death in Assisted Living
Nearly 750,000 elderly Americans are spending their later years in for-profit assisted living facilities. This loosely regulated, multibillion-dollar industry is dominated by one company: Emeritus Senior Living. In a major year-long investigation, FRONTLINE and ProPublica raise questions about fatal lapses in care, understaffing and a quest for profits within a company that operates more than 400 assisted living facilities across the country.
