Many of us have parents, grandparents and friends who are part of the “silent generation,” born between the mid 1920’s and 1940’s. These beloved elders are fundamental in shaping who we are and what we will become. Just as these parents and grandparents have nurtured, cared, and helped us throughout our lives, there comes a time where they also need a bit of help with daily needs and tasks. Everyday families are faced with making the gut-wrenching decision to move a loved one to a nursing home or other care facility. This decision is often costly, both emotionally and financially. It is completely devastating to learn when this silent generation has been neglected or abused at the hands of those who are entrusted with their care.
Choosing a nursing home is a very difficult and important decision. We always want to ensure those who poured out so much into helping us grow and prosper are in excellent hands when we’re away. Fortunately, the majority of facilities in the Tampa Bay Area and Florida live up to these standards, but that isn’t always the case. Unfortunately, some facilities are in the business of putting profits over the wellness of the some of the most vulnerable, which is completely unacceptable. That’s why our firm has chosen to represent the elderly victims of negligent or abusive care.
Some of the nursing home neglect and abuse cases we’ve seen are completely shocking. We trust the employees at nursing homes and facilities to protect our loved ones — not harm them. Oftentimes neglect occurs because a facility is understaffed or improperly trained. Nursing home abuse can come in many forms, including physical, psychological, sexual and financial. Our law firm has handled nursing home and other personal injury cases for more than 35 years, committed to holding facilities accountable for improper care of this silent generation and ensuring our loved ones are treated with the utmost care and respect.
