Assisted Living Facilities in Los Angeles, CA
Retain a Los Angeles Elder Abuse Lawyer
Assisted living facilities often offer elderly individuals or dependent adults and their families the best of both worlds. While many dependent adults need assistance with daily living activities, they do not require the 24-hour care found at a nursing home. When elderly citizens are almost self-sufficient, individual apartments with kitchens and private bathrooms may appear to provide the perfect solution. Their families can feel comfortable knowing that help is available if their loved one requires it, though they don't require constant monitoring. However, there are many instances in which elder abuse can occur in an assisted living facility, just as it does in a nursing home. If you feel that your loved one has been neglected or abused by staff or other assisted living residents, contact a Los Angeles elder abuse attorney from our firm immediately.
Suffering from abuse in an assisted living facility?
While assisted living facilities do not provide extensive medical care like nursing homes do, they still offer some basic care and support. They may provide reminders for patients to take their medication or go to their doctor's appointment. In addition, they help them with any daily activities they need assistance with, such as bathing or driving. These simply tasks may not appear to require much support, but for an elderly citizen, it could be dangerous to attempt on their own. Most incidents of abuse and neglect that occur in nursing homes can cause serious physical pain and emotional trauma. Although residents at assisted living facilities are less dependent, they can still suffer from the following types of abuse:
Families often don't realize how much their loved ones suffer from the following issues at assisted living facilities. If your loved one shows signs of abuse, act quickly to remove him or her from that situation. Once they have received necessary medical treatment, seek legal counsel from an elder abuse lawyer at our firm.
