Group home facilities and assisted living centers offer alternatives for many individuals unable to care for themselves. These facilities are obligated to provide specific standard levels of care and quality of living for their residents. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect often occurs.
At Adams Law Firm, P.C., our Rockland County nursing home lawyers understand the emotional and physical hardships attached to neglect.
Due to medical or psychological conditions or intimidation, many residents are at the mercy of their caregivers. We are committed to protecting the rights of society’s vulnerable citizens - those who may not be able to protect themselves.
