Memory Care Facility Abuse Attorneys

We hold assisted living facilities accountable for their actions

Assisted living facilities serve an important role in our society. This is especially true for adults with memory-related issues, including Alzheimer’s and dementia. Specific facilities known as “memory care facilities” provide specialized care for adults who require 24-hour supervised care and additional attention.

That’s why assisted living abuse cases involving memory care facilities are so upsetting. In too many cases, patients are placed in these facilities when they do not need to be, or kept in – and billed for – 24-hour care that they do not actually receive. Due to understaffing and other issues at the management level, many residents in memory care and assisted living facilities suffer physical injuries, deteriorated health, financial exploitation, social isolation, and sometimes death.

How we can help your family

You might think you don’t need a lawyer if someone caused harm to your loved one in a memory care facility. All you have to do is report the injury to the nursing home or perhaps the police and they will investigate your claim.

Unfortunately, such cases often turn out to be extremely complicated. That’s because many memory care facilities insist they didn’t do anything wrong. They might “lose” paperwork or otherwise find ways to cover their tracks.

Don’t let them push you around. If something happened to your loved one, if they were injured or harmed in any way, our attorneys can fight for your rights every step of the way. We can investigate exactly what happened. We know how to find the truth. And we’re prepared to take them to court if necessary. Put your trust in us. Schedule your free case evaluation right now.
