Defending the Elderly in Assisted Living Facilities
In some ways, assisted living facility residents have to rely on their care providers at least as much as nursing home residents rely on their caregivers. Because assisted living residents generally have greater mobility and mental cognizance, their needs can become more specialized and unique. This reliance on their caregiver place assisted living facility residents in a great degree of dependence on their caregivers.
In far too many cases, assisted living facility caregivers take advantage of vulnerability and reliance placed on them by the elderly residents in their care. If you or an elderly relative has suffered any form of elder abuse or exploitation at the hands of health care providers, contact us.
