It's a serious problem. Elderly residents of nursing homes suddenly disappear and wander off into a nearby street or walk unsupervised into towns or fields. Nursing home managers and staff are trained to provide close supervision of residents with dementia and Alzheimer's but every year, thousands of elderly residents get injured after walking away from their care center; if you or an elderly family member has wandered off without supervision, contact one of our lawyers today by calling 888.959.8508 or email us to get free consultation.
Senior Citizens Injured or Killed While Wandering Off
If you have an elderly family member who was injured or killed after walking away from a nursing home, you may have a claim against the management and owners for nursing home abuse.
