Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Compassionate advocates for the elderly

The United States has thousands of long-term care facilities serving millions of residents. When the medical demands of elderly parents overwhelm their adult-children, they may turn to licensed professionals at nursing homes and long-term care facilities. Unfortunately, neglect and abuse may happen at these facilities.

When you make the difficult decision to place your elderly loved one in a nursing home, you are trusting that they will receive proper care. When this trust is broken it could be at great cost to your loved one. Facilities may cut corners and provide substandard care to residents. Shockingly, some staff members may even recklessly or intentionally harm residents.
