When Care Facilities Are Neglectful

Placing a loved one in a nursing home is often a wrenching decision. Being the caregiver for an elderly relative can be incredibly difficult and emotionally draining, particularly when conditions such as dementia are present. Concerned family members rely on professional caregivers in nursing homes, care centers and rehabilitation facilities because they trust them to do right by their loved ones.

Unfortunately, sometimes the patients who need the most care and supervision are the ones who end up in harm’s way. Patients with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related conditions, if not properly monitored, could be prone to attempting to leave the premises on their own. At The Law Office of Terry S. Nelson, P.A., we are committed to helping people in Fort Myers and throughout Southwest Florida whose loved ones have been injured as a result of wandering and elopement issues.
