Welcome to the Arvin website for the Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer, Ben Yeroushalmi. Mr. Yeroushalmi and his team of attorneys and elder law experts are passionate about protecting older adults from being abused or neglected in long-term care facilities throughout the California region.
Located a short 15 miles southeast of the city of Bakersfield, Arvin is a city located in Kern County that, according to its locals, is “The Garden in the Sun.” Born in 1908, Arvin became officially adopted into Kern County on December 21, 1960. The city got its name after Arvin Richardson, who was the son of an Ohio landowner. If you appreciate quiet and clean residential areas, seldom activities of crime, a top-notch fire station, and a pristine City Hall, you’re sure to like the city of Arvin. Not only does the city support community gatherings by providing a Veterans hall, it also has a Department of Motor Vehicles and an impressive library filled with local art by the artist Roberta Jean Owens. Arvin also supports an agricultural-based economy, as well as an expanding manufacturing economy. Due to its community’s strong leadership for water rights and supply, Arvin has enabled the prosperity and stamina of the agricultural industry. The city’s numerous packinghouses utilize the railroad tracks to ship fresh vegetables and fruits to all parts of the world. Names such as “Grimmway carrots, Gold Ribbon potatoes, and Di Giorgio grapes, peaches and plums” might sound familiar to market shoppers all across the nation. In regards to Arvin’s Grimmway Farms, it is the world’s biggest producer of carrots. According to the 2010 United States Census, the city consists of a population of 19, 304. There is one nursing home located in Arvin, and 14 assisted living facilities nearby.
As a team of specialists in nursing home and assisted living facility abuse litigation, we want to educate the people of Arvin about the importance of being cautious when selecting a healthcare facility for yourself or someone you love. Many people often assume that long-term care facilities, by default, always meet the basic needs of their residents. Unfortunately, this is not the case. All too often family members find their loved ones malnourished and dehydrated under the care of nursing staff in these facilities. In a country that offers an abundant supply of food and clean water, there is no excuse for a nursing home patient to suffer from these kinds of problems. Not only are both physically deleterious to a resident’s health, malnutrition and dehydration also take a direct toll on one’s cognitive wellbeing, increasing the risk of developing a form of cognitive impairment or psychological disorder.
If you or someone you care about has experienced a form of abuse or neglect in a long-term care facility, such as a skilled nursing home or assisted living facility, please contact the elder law attorney Ben Yeroushalmi, immediately. Mr. Yeroushalmi and his associate attorneys and experts believe that older adults are extremely vulnerable to poor health outcomes and reduced quality of life in these types of facilities. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi will pursue your case relentlessly until a just resolution is obtained.
