Lawyer for the elderly, Ben Yeroushalmi is aware that diabetes is becoming more and more widespread in skilled nursing facilities today. Nursing home statistics have found that 20% of adults from 65 to 75 years of age, and 40% of adults over the age of 80 suffer from this rampant illness. The Journal of American Medical Directors Association recently published an "Update on Diabetes in the Elderly and in Nursing Homes" You can read our blog about it on this website.

Diabetes often demonstrates itself in symptoms such as exhaustion and weight loss, and as these issues are often chalked up to old age anyway, many with diabetes never get diagnosed correctly. That's one of many reasons your loved one's nursing home must be adequately staffed with trained professionals who can distinguish what may be signs of illness. Evidence shows that nursing home residents with cognitive difficulties, such as dementia, aren't always given the special nutrition they require. Caregivers must also stay watchful because studies show that diabetics suffer more falls and broken bones than those without the disease. This is a important because falls in the elderly have serious implications, including broken hips and even death, but can frequently be avoided with an attentive and active staff. Residents of skilled nursing facilities who are forever being transferred here and there--moved from one hospital to the next--are at greater risk for heart failure, hypertension, kidney disease, visual impairment, and foot problems. Because of the variety of illnesses and side effects that come along with diabetes, adults who suffer it need extra help from staff for the normal activities of everyday living. So if your loved one is diabetic or shows any symptoms of it, it's imperative that you make sure his or her skilled nursing facility is providing the best possible care.

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
