When we age we watch our daily abilities alter bit by bit until what we once did on a mundane and recurring level is now modified to the point of being unrecognizable. So much that we took for granted in performing necessary daily tasks is now what we would give absolutely anything to be able to do for ourselves again. When we reach this point, how we planned in our former years will affect where we go to survive, as well as if we must go anywhere at all.
Many people prefer to stay in their homes and to retain as much of their former lives as they possibly can, for as long as they possibly can. This can be done with home health care and caregivers to assist with everything from skilled care to basic tasks like using the commode, bathing, brushing teeth or getting from the bed to a chair and back again. If you cannot afford the option to stay at home and you must leave your home for a nursing home, you may have mounting concerns.
Much has been in the media regarding victims of nursing home abuse and injustices performed against elderly individuals trusting their well-being to the nursing home’s attendants and their care and expertise. However, injuries do happen and sometimes they are the fault of the nursing home, either through negligence, reckless disregard or even error.
If you are hurt in a nursing home accident and you believe the nursing home was to blame, you do have means for relief and compensation. In some cases, this relief could be enough to put you back into your home again. The attorneys of Brenna Boyce, PLLC, will work for your to ensure your suffering ceases and those guilty of causing the harm are held accountable. You don’t deserve to suffer through the latter years of your life, and if someone is guilty of causing a nursing home injury, you may be entitled to substantial monetary remuneration.
