Advances in medicine allow people to live longer. As the average age of our population increases, more and more senior citizens require care in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Often, their family members are just not able to provide the necessary care.

When faced with the tough decision to place a loved one in a nursing home or in an assisted living facility, you should be able to trust that your loved one is receiving proper attention and care. Unfortunately, many nursing home and assisted living residents suffer from abuse and neglect as evidenced by one or more of the following indicators:

  • The presence of bed sores
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Falls
  • Infections
  • Wandering off the facility

With an alarming degree of frequency, these problems can result in death.

Louise Lock has years of experience helping those whose family members or loved ones have been needlessly harmed or sustained injury or death in a nursing home or assisted living facility. Ms. Lock will not only get the answers that you need and want, but also the justice and compensation that you or your loved ones deserve.
