Orlando Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers
Standing Up for the Elderly in Naples, Ft. Myers, & Beyond
The decision to place a parent, grandparent, or other loved one in a nursing home is one of the most difficult decisions any family can make. You have every right to expect that your loved one will be treated with dignity, respect, compassion, and quality care.
More and more elderly individuals seek care in nursing homes every year. Sadly, some statistics suggest that as many as one-third of individuals residing in nursing homes experience some form of abuse or neglect. Perhaps even more troubling is that the vast majority of this abuse and neglect either goes unnoticed or unreported.
