York Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
The population in Pennsylvania is aging rapidly. Just over 17% of our population is over the age of 65. York County is around average at 16.6%. As a result, many York County, Pennsylvania residents will find themselves needing to reside in a long-term care facility such as a nursing home or assisted living facility. When the need arises to make this tough decision, financial hardships will likely follow. Not many families are prepared for the costs of long-term care. Prices for private facilities are high, and Medicaid requires all assets except the primary residence to be depleted. Unfortunately, whether a loved one is in private or Medicaid funded nursing home, the risks of elder abuse are always present. Many facilities place profits over resident safety. If you or a loved one have been wrongfully subject to nursing home abuse or neglect, call me, Joseph Monaco, to learn how a York Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer can help.
Many people think elder abuse is something that takes place in a chilling, crotchety nursing home with Medicaid residents; however, abuse or neglect can happen at what appears to be a friendly, efficient private pay facility. Elder abuse may even happen at home by a caregiver.
