Residents’ Rights

Nursing Home/Assisted Living Facility

Elder Law Associates PA strongly advocate for our clients residing in facilities or entering a facility for the first time. We also know their families need help too. We are discrimination watchdogs and pay special attention to the starting points of mistreatment or inferior service. These services include source of payment, resident lifestyle preferences, providing necessary services, limits on use of physical restraints, use of psychoactive medications and feeding tubes, visitors’ rights, Admission Agreement prerequisites and arbitration claims.

In addition, we actively participate in care plans for our clients and their families. Care plans address an individual’s particular needs and preferences. Too many families do not have a voice or an advocate at their care plan meeting, creating potential for dissatisfaction. We fill this role for our clients and the value is immeasurable.
