We spotted a very informational article from
The Washington Post this month that illustrates that some minor home repairs could allow more
seniors in America to live independently longer, and not have to go into
a nursing home. We all know elderly family or friends who have had accidents
in their homes because of a bathtub or a broken banister, which has forced
them to move.
Lowering kitchen cabinets, providing better utensils and making other small-cost
updates are expected to yield tremendous benefits on many of the participants.
We encourage you to read and share this article, as it may provide some
helpful advice for you or the seniors in your life.
One of our areas of focus is nursing home abuse litigation. Our attorneys
have brought thousands of cases on behalf of our clients because of abuse
and neglect at the hands of those at the assisted living facility or nursing
home in which a loved one is living. If seniors in America can retain
their independence in their own houses, it will make them happier –
as so few want to move from their homes in the first place – and
can begin to combat the rash of abuse we see happening at nursing homes
in Pennsylvania and across the country.
The level of care at Shrager, Spivey and Sachs law firm in Philadelphia
clearly shows that we understand the issues that are important to seniors.
