If your loved one lives in a nursing home and has dementia, surely you worry about his or her quality of life. Measuring quality of life is inherently subjective. For residents with dementia, measuring quality of life is more complex because the residents' self-assessment may be affected by cognitive impairment, such as loss of memory and reasoning, and noncognitive ailments, such as depression and psychosis. All too often, dementia patients are taken advantage of by their caregivers. Instead of taking the time to enroll a patient in behavioral therapies, nurses often use chemical restraints to subdue dementia patients who are susceptible to episodes of agitation.

Unfortunately, some cases of pervasive neglect and abuse lead to the death of a resident, and studies have shown that dementia patients who are being restrained by antipsychotic drugs are more than twice as likely to die during treatment. This may result in a Wrongful Death action. Often times, injuries and instances of death suffered by residents of nursing homes are the result of a violation of the Patients' Bill of Rights, which every Skilled Nursing Facility in the State of California obligates itself to abide by in its admissions agreement. When a patient suffers from dementia, he or she may be less capable of monitoring his or her own quality of life and require more visits, calls and similar supervision from family members, but that does not absolve the skilled nursing center from its responsibility to provide the best possible care to your loved one.

If your loved one suffers from dementia and you suspect that he or she is being abused in his or her skilled nursing facility, contact us immediately. We will come to your home to provide you with a free consultation under the circumstances that you are unable to come to us.

Client Reviews
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. Anonymous review
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
