New York Assisted Living Center Neglect Advocates
Group home facilities and assisted living centers offer alternatives for many individuals unable to care for themselves. These facilities are obligated to provide specific standard levels of care and quality of living for their residents. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect often occurs.
At Adams Law Firm, P.C., our legal team understands the emotional and physical hardships attached to neglect. Due to medical or psychological conditions or intimidation, many residents are at the mercy of their caregivers. We are committed to protecting the rights of society's vulnerable citizens — those who may not be able to protect themselves.
Traditionally, group homes provide 24-hour supervision for individuals who possess specific levels of mental deficiency. Personnel are often paid minimum wage to supervise the daily needs of people ranging from youngsters to adults.
Our Bronx group home abuse attorneys understand how improper training, inadequate staffing and lack of supervision can impact your loved one's time in a group home. Your loved one could suffer severe consequences from physical and mental abuse as well as dangerous roommate situations. We can evaluate your loved one's situation from every angle to determine the best course of action.
