Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Legal Help Boston

When Seniors Are Abused by Caregivers

Residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities depend on nurses, aides and staff to provide quality care, and to protect them from harm. It is horrifying when the very people we trust to care for our elderly or disabled parents, grandparents or other family members harm them. When nursing home administrators and employees abuse or neglect residents, the people we love can suffer serious illness, exploitation, injury and even death.
