A Place for Mom Helps Families Find Appropriate Senior Care Options
In New York and across the country, nursing home abuse and neglect cases appear to have reached epidemic proportions. Children and relatives with elderly family members to care for are understandably concerned about finding the right living situation for their loved ones.
Here at The Sanders Firm, our attorneys have seen the effects of elder neglect and abuse in New York. And as the state’s nursing facilities move from private to for-profit institutions, reports of abuse increase. According to the New York Attorney General’s office, abuse and neglect allegations increased from 1,392 to 1,644 (or 18 percent) between 2013 and 2015.
When searching for assisted living options for elderly relatives, many New Yorkers could use the guidance that A Place for Mom provides. The Sanders Firm is happy to bring this resource to their attention.
How a Place for Mom helps families
A Place for Mom connects families with senior living options. The program has been around for 15 years, helping families throughout the United States and Canada find the right situation for older relatives who need assistance. Although the name focuses on “mom,” services are available for “dad” too, as well as any other elderly relative who needs to find the right place to live.
Services offered by A Place for Mom are completely free of charge. The program involves advisors who touch base with you throughout your search for the right place for your family member. Their menu of services also includes a comprehensive look at assisted living options available in your region. Experts at A Place for Mom survey licenses, inspection reports, and other information to help you determine whether a living situation will be a good, safe fit for your loved one.
A Place for Mom can help guide you through the process of selecting the best possible living arrangement for your loved one so that you can feel confident that he or she is safe and secure.
Justice for nursing home abuse and neglect
Attorneys at The Sanders Firm are happy to recommend A Place for Mom because we have seen too many cases of neglect and mistreatment in the courts.
Unfortunately, many families who have done their best to secure what they thought were good situations for their loved ones have been shocked to find out that their mothers, fathers, and other relatives have been mistreated in nursing homes and other long term care facilities. In these unfortunate circumstances, the courts can help bring justice to those who have mistreated our most vulnerable population.
If your relative has been emotionally, financially or physically harmed in a nursing home or assisted living setting, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against negligent individuals who carried out or allowed abuse to occur.
