Clearly the APA is looking at a gold mine they created. Given the years of mind drugging from the introduction of Prozac (1989)and based on the false chemical imbalance theory that they lied to the public about, no doubt the aging society will have Alzheimer disease along with various stages of forgetfulness and other health problems.
I bet the APA is calculating the monies from the government and the pharmacutical industry is wanting their fair share on the aging.. Why else would the industries buy into the nursing homes. Watch what legislation and changes in law are coming concerning false drugging of the elderly.

There's A Crisis With Nursing Homes
If you are talking about what Cliff Schecter described as
the Carlyle Group, an international investment club for yacht owners that exists so scoundrels from across the globe can break bread while discussing ways to further enrich themselves at the expense of 99.75% of the world's people, and its prominent members including the Bush and bin Laden familes? The only thing I have about that association is from the people at The Guardian.
The Carlyle Group has a colorful history that has attracted attention. Its list of former advisors includes George H.W. Bush. It sold a 7.5% stake in to the Middle Eastern emirate of Abu Dhabi, and prior to 2001, its investors included the bin Laden family of Saudi Arabia.
The Carlyle Group is moving well beyond their usual interests, involving itself in the operation of nursing homes (it has no experience in nursing homes), and forwarding the crazy notion that patient care should rank at least somewhere in the priority range of how many Mercedes your average Carlyler can pack into their 18-car garage.
These types of private for-profits have acquired nursing homes, cut expenses and staff, sometimes below minimum legal requirements, increased profits, and quickly resold facilities for "significant" gains. If the Carlyle Group marriage to Manor Care is successful, they then could sell it to Dubai, which has more money than it knows how to deal with. But by regulatory benchmarks, residents at those nursing homes are worse off then they were under their previous public for-profit owners.
