Stop Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence in New York City
Your parents spent their entire lives working to make sure you were taken care of, and now it is your turn to make sure they are taken care of. But deciding to send parents, older relatives and other loved ones to a nursing home or assisted living facility is not easy.
Many people feel guilt at the thought of placing a loved one in a long-term care facility, but the reality is that you probably do not have the time or experience to provide the care that your aging loved one needs.
