When a person puts their elder loved one into a nursing home, they are doing so with a certain level of trust given to the ones that will be caring for them. It is expected that they will be treated with dignity, respect and a gentle hand. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and your loved one falls prey to abuse or neglect at the hands of their caretakers. If this is the situation you are facing you need the help of an elder neglect attorney.
You Have a Busy Life
The reason you make the decision to commit a loved one to a nursing home is you simply don’t have the time to give them the attention and care that they deserve and need. You have a career and a family you have to tend to. Most often your loved one needs to be put into a nursing home because they are simply not able to care for themselves anymore in their twilight years and they need assistance. That is why you move them into a place that has an entire staff that is dedicated to giving them what they need. You are paying them to tend to your loved one’s medical needs and look after them. Sadly, some nursing homes do not give that level of dedication and they ignore the people under their charge. If this is what is happening, then of course you and your loved one should be compensated for the neglect that has occurred.
