Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

As our loved ones age, it is often impossible to balance their need for care with our resources and need to work. Many families turn to nursing homes and other residential care facilities to provide the care we cannot. Too often, however, these facilities and their employees fail to adhere to an appropriate standard of care.

Nursing home abuse is a terrible and saddening situation that is an unfortunate fact of life in many areas around the country. It is difficult to believe that so many individuals and businesses take advantage of our most vulnerable loved ones. How can a care worker whose very job description is care for the elderly commit such acts?

If you suspect that a loved one or family member is suffering from nursing home abuse or neglect, it is very important that you contact a nursing home abuse lawyer. An attorney from the law offices of Marzzacco Niven & Associates can help you protect the rights of your valued and important family member. When your parent, grandparent or other loved one is suffering abuse at the hands of his or her caretakers, prompt action is essential.
