Your Elderly Love One is Out of State?
What Can You Do If Your Elderly Loved One Is In a Health Care Facility in Another State?
In today’s world, it is not uncommon for children to move to away from their childhood homes when they reach adulthood, often leaving parents in the family homestead. When parents age and their health declines, one or both may need to become a resident of a long-term care facility.
Ensuring that elderly parents living in a long-term care facility in another state are well cared for presents a real challenge.
If your parent is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, pursuing a claim on their behalf while living a long distance away is extremely difficult – especially since many long-term care facilities are owned and operated by large, nationwide corporations with tremendous resources.
