It is often a very difficult to decide a parent or loved one needs additional care and would be better served in a nursing home. Choosing the right facility is difficult and time-consuming.

Unfortunately, nursing homes are for-profit institutions that often put their bottom line ahead of the care of their residents. The result is nursing home staff abusing or neglecting the elderly who, in many cases, are unable to defend themselves from misconduct.
