The Abuse of Elders in New York City
Although elder abuse is illegal, many facilities still fail to provide the level of attention required to keep their seniors healthy and safe. Elder abuse is any infliction of harm to the resident, whether emotional, financial, physical, or sexual. Elder neglect is the failure of a nursing home or assisted living facility staff to provide the necessary services to care for a resident’s overall wellbeing.
The abuse and neglect of a nursing home resident or assisted living facility member can take many forms. In every situation, however, the senior can suffer great loss to his or her quality of life and the loss of life itself. At the Law Office of James Trainor, P.C., we do not tolerate neglect in the care of our seniors and we can help you pursue the compensation that you and your loved one deserve.
