The Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi is made up of a team of experienced lawyers and elder law experts that is passionate and dedicated to advocating for the elderly, especially those who have been victims of abuse or neglect in a skilled nursing facility or assisted living facility. We created this website to help the people of McFarland become more knowledgeable when choosing a long-term care facility for their loved ones. It is important to be aware of the risk factors in order to avoid placing an older adult resident in a long-term care facility that puts them at risk of poor quality of life and negative health outcomes.

The City of McFarland is part of Kern County and located in the San Joaquin Valley. A teacher named James Boyd McFarland from Zanesville, Ohio moved to the Anaheim area in the early 1900s, eager to get into the real estate business and start a walnut farm. In 1907, Mr. McFarland made a visit to Kern County and saw potential in the land’s ability to grow crops near a village called Hunt’s Siding. This village served a small agricultural and livestock based community made up of approximately 50 families. Turning to a real estate businessman from Bakersfield named William Laird, Mr. McFarland purchased 50 acres of land—now known as the City of McFarland. The town was born in 1909 and adopted during the summer of 1957. The city’s population grew quickly in the Great Depression era of the 1930s, but then tapered off in the period of World War II.

McFarland was divided into an east side and west side in 1950, when the major corridor of the Central Valley, Highway 99, was developed. In 1908, McFarland’s first post office was built. In 2015, a movie called McFarland USA was released. It was based on a true event that occurred at McFarland High School.

According to the United States 2010 Census, the City of McFarland had a population of 12, 707. There are 14 assisted living facilities and 10 skilled nursing facilities located near McFarland serving its older adult community.

In recent years, much concern has been focused on the need to enhance the quality of care provided in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities in the United States. This includes long-term care facilities in McFarland, California. Older adults living in these facilities are extremely vulnerable to illnesses and infections such as pressure ulcers and urinary incontinence. The elder abuse attorney Ben Yeroushalmi wants you to know that these factors are important quality care indicators in long-term care facilities due to their significant association to quality of life, the risk of comorbidities and hospitalizations, and the risk of mortality. At the same time, these factors are preventable with high quality nursing care or treatable with quality behavioral or pharmacological therapies.

If you or someone you love is suffering due to the lack of quality care in a nursing home or assisted living facility, please contact our attorneys at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, today.

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
