About Assisted Living Facilities
An assisted living facility is designed to help older adults who can no longer properly perform day-to-day activities but still would like to live as independently as possible. As opposed to a nursing home that may care for patients who are very weak and have numerous health problems, an assisted living facility is typically sought out by patients with fewer needs but who may still need assistance with meal preparation, dressing, dressing, household chores, etc. An assisted living facility can offer an elderly resident the help he or she needs along with the independence of making his or her own decisions or not feeling as though he or she is in a "nursing home".
It is unfortunate that elder abuse, neglect, malnutrition
and other serious problems may occur in assisted living facilities. If you have observed any signs of these or have received complaints from your elderly loved one, contact a lawyer at our Los Angeles law firm to schedule a consultation to discuss the matter.
