Protecting Seniors in Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Matters
As people age, their needs change. They often become dependent on family members to give them the physical and emotional support they need. Unfortunately there may come a time when family members and friends can no longer provide the needed support and reluctantly turn to professional assistance, such as nursing homes, for help. Families put their trust in the home and expect that the professional staff will give the same level of care that they would give to their loved one. Tragically, this trust is sometimes abused, causing physical, emotional, and financial harm to both the residents and their families.
If you think a parent, spouse or loved one has suffered emotional or physical abuse in a nursing home, we can help. At the Javerbaum Wurgaft Nursing Home Group, we utilize a comprehensive approach that goes beyond merely placing a value on injuries. We look to the cause of the problems to not only compensate both the residents and their families, but also to attempt to prevent similar problems in the future for all residents. With offices in Mount Laurel and New York City, we are committed to helping clients throughout New Jersey obtain dignified care for the elderly and infirmed.
