A group called Senior Action Network is calling for more staff and improvements at the Alden Wentworth Nursing Home.The home, located in the 200-block of West 69th Street, is part of a chain of nursing homes in the city and suburbs.

The Chicago Reporter Magazine said it's found a disparity in quality of care depending on the race of the majority of people in homes owned by this particular company.

"Each of the three predominately black homes received the lowest possible rating from nursing home compare, which is a tool of the federal government they received one star out of a possible 5 star rating," said Jeff Kelly Lowenstein, The Chicago Reporter

There has been no response from the owner of the nursing home.
