Making the decision to put a loved one into a nursing home or an assisted living facility is never easy. You trust that facility to give them the best of care, but sadly, that does not always occur. According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, Ombudsman programs received over 188,000 complaints concerning exploitation, gross neglect or abuse in nursing homes across the country in 2014. If you suspect your loved one is being neglected or abused, it is important to talk with an elder care attorney as soon as possible. Our attorney, Christopher Burk, knows this is a difficult and traumatic time for you and your loved one, and he is passionate about holding nursing homes and care facilities responsible for the damages that come from abuse or neglect.
