Nursing Home/Assisted Living Residents' Rights

Elder Law strongly advocates for our clients residing in nursing homes and assisted living facilities (ALFs) or when 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 plan meetings 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 the potential for dissatisfaction. We fill this role for our clients and the value is immeasurable. In particular, we can assist a client who is being discharged from a facility, but who wishes to remain in that facility for ongoing care needs.

For more information, contact us today. At Elder Law, we give families peace of mind.


Our highly trained attorneys are adept at navigating all the complexities of elder law and have received praise for their superlative work from clients, peers and other professionals in the industry.
