State lawmakers and advocates said they are concerned about reports of neglect and abuse of residents in a nursing home for military veterans, a disclosure that led the state to end its relationship with the company that has managed the facility since 2002.

Moore, a combat veteran, Wednesday said the state canceled a contract with South Carolina-based HMR to operate the nursing home that cares for 267 honorably discharged veterans and spouses. The state is also seeking an emergency contract to send a team of nurses into the facility to assess the health and well-being of the residents.

This hits me close. My father in law received excellent end of life care at the Soldiers' Home in Holyoke, MA, which was established by the state in 1867. It has been expanded and modernized over the near 160 years of continuous service.
