Suspect a Loved One Has Been the Victim of Nursing Home Abuse in Long Island?

No family truly looks forward to placing a loved one in a nursing home, but for most, the reality remains that their family member’s condition requires dedicated professional care, a nurturing environment, and round-the-clock supervision and care to help maintain a person’s quality of life.

Today, nursing homes are big business. As the baby boomer generation’s need for skilled nursing home facilities grows, profit-focused corporate chains have come to dominate the market.

This increase in the number of residents and emphasis on profits has led to a distressing rise in instances of neglected and abused seniors.

However, instead of improving safety, corporate nursing homes often can be seen working to limit their accountability and denying residents’ rights rather than accept responsibility for their lack of due care.
