 ELDER ABUSE AND NEGLECT

With the growing elder population, we are experiencing an epidemic of negligent care in residential care homes, skilled nursing facilities and hospitals.  These facilities, regardless of whether they charge $3,500/month or $15,000/month, are often understaffed and its employees lack the requisite training necessary to address their patients’ needs. More importantly, the employees often times cannot provide they care they wish to provide due to forces beyond their control. Families leave their loved ones in the hands of nursing home operators who treat them as a source of income rather than a human being. The safeguards which should be built into the “system” are simply proving to be ineffective.  If you or your loved one is being abused or neglected, you do not have to accept your circumstances.  Contact us to fight for him or her, regardless of their circumstances.
