Delano, California

Welcome to the official nursing home and assisted living facility elder abuse website for the City of Delano. Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Ben Yeroushalmi and his team of elder law experts and attorneys believe that every older adult in a long-term care facility should be treated with the best quality of care to maintain optimal wellbeing and quality of life.

Born on July 14, 1869, Delano first served as a railroad town. Delano got its name from Columbus Delano by the Southern Pacific Railroad, which wanted to honor their Secretary of the Interior for the United States at the time. In 1974, Delano’s first Post Office was established. By 1915, the city was officially incorporated into Kern County. Many farmworker organization efforts and politics spurred by the Chicano movement took place in this city. Instrumental leaders of the farm worker organizations that occurred throughout the 1950s were Philip Vera Cruz and Larry Dulay Itliong, who were Filipino immigrants. Larry Itliong and various other Filipino leaders organized the mainly Filipino Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee (AWOC) in the Delano grape strike on September 8, 1965. The strike was a “walk off” from table grape farms, for the purpose of calling for increased farmworkers’ wages and improved working conditions. Within a week, Cesar Chavez, the leader of a predominantly Hispanic union called the National Farm Workers’ Association (NFWA), joined the strike. Soon after, the two groups partnered together and established the United Farm Workers of America (UFW). The UFW successfully obtained a contract with leading grape growers throughout California in 1970.

Delano has four sister cities, one each in Japan, Italy, Mexico, and the Philippines. On January 6, 1964, the city’s first sister city relationship was born, when the Mayor and Delano City Council enacted Resolution 1964-1, officially adopting the town Asti, Italy. Soon after that time, Delano adopted other cities due to their similarities and readiness to cultivate friendships and cultural interactions. When the Delano City Council and Mayor enacted Resolution 1985-47 to establish a seven Member Executive Board on April 25, 1985, the Delano Sister City Committee was born.

In 1956, when Dwight D. Eisenhower, the President of the United States at the time, demanded extensive exchanges between the United States and other nations, the White House adopted the Sister City program as a national concept.

There are 3 nursing homes located in Delano, CA and 14 assisted living facilities nearby, located in Bakersfield, CA. Older adults in need of assistance with activities of daily living due to frailty, multiple comorbidities, and decreased autonomy often use nursing homes and assisted living facilities to meet their care needs. Elder abuse attorney Ben Yeroushalmi wants you to be aware that these types of facilities can be an unsafe place for older adults due to their susceptibility to elder abuse, which can take the form of neglect (such as caregiver neglect or self-neglect), physical, psychological, and sexual abuse, and financial abuse. According to a recent study published by The Gerontological Society of America, 1 out of every 10 elderly individuals are victims of some type of elder abuse, and only a small number of incidences are actually reported.

Excellent staff and the epitome of genuine, honest, and beyond helpful. I was lost and running out of time until I found Yeroushalmi law office. I am beyond grateful and had the pleasure of working with such amazing people who look out for your best interest. Anonymous review
Ben Yeroushalmi accepted my case with much understanding and patience. He went above and beyond with the defense lawyers to reach a fair settlement. He explained the complete case process (as I had never filed a case with anyone) Ben kept my sister and I notified of every email or correspondence he had with the opposing council. Gloria
Ben is an outstanding litigator, and human being. He took on our case, as if it was his own. He paid close attention to details. His guidance was invaluable. He was very clear and concise, in explaining all potential scenarios to us. He spoke eloquently, and straight to the point at all times. Ben is a true professional, with a passion for his craft.

I had a heartfelt and memorable experience with Ben , very genuine and I can tell he loves what he does. His determination shows beautifully and it is amazing. In my opinion it is very rare you find people who love what they're doing and it shows. Not wanting to get religious on an review but, God introduced me to Ben for a reason. Summer
Ben was wonderful. He took our case when no one else was interested or wanted way to much money. We would highly recommend Ben because he really listens and takes your situation into consideration. We settled our case and we were only unhappy with one thing and that was the confidentiality clause but that was not Ben's fault it came with the deal. June
