Living Arrangements Change As We Age
Admissions and Care Worries
10,000 Americans turn 65 every day. The geriatric-care industry is booming. More and more, seniors transition from their own homes to independent-living retirement communities, then assisted care facilities and on to skilled nursing facilities as their needs and comfort dictate. Admissions to facilities for each stage of care can be problematic and as a senior’s independence wanes, vulnerability to abuse and neglect increases. Our San Francisco and California elder abuse attorneys represent elder abuse victims wherever they reside against the persons and facilities responsible for the abuse.
If you or someone you know is suffering from elder abuse here in San Francisco or elsewhere in California, call the elder abuse attorneys at Evans Law Firm today at 415-441-8669, and we can help. As we age our ability to perform life’s essential daily activities like dressing, bathing, cooking and eating often deteriorate. That’s when we need help and sadly there are persons who take advantage of our increased dependency and vulnerability. It is legally and ethically wrong. Fortunately, California has laws to protect us from exploitation, abuse and neglect as we age.
Our attorneys specialize in those California elder laws. We know your rights and remedies and the standard of care required of those who care for you, whether it’s an in-home caregiver, assisted care operator, or skilled nursing facility (nursing home). Our litigators pursue all remedies available to elder abuse victims. Those remedies include economic damages and damages for pain and suffering, extra damages in certain circumstances, and awards of attorneys’ fees and costs to the victim. California leads the nation in remedies for elder abuse and our attorneys know how best to pursue those remedies through litigation.
