Like many other cities in Fresno County, California, Mendota has its roots in the railroad business. In 1891, the city was home to the Southern Pacific Railroad storage and switching facility. A year later, the first post office was opened and Mendota was incorporated in 1942. Since then, the city has been flourishing, with agriculture the center of production. Due to Mendota’s immense cantaloupe production, the city was deemed the “Cantaloupe Center of the World.” In addition to agriculture, the city’s industries include solar power plants, a Federal Correctional Institution, a biomass plant, and a variety of produce companies. The city also has a library that is a branch of the San Joaquin Valley Library System, called Mendota Branch Library, which opened in 2007. Opportunities for recreational activities are many, with four city parks, as well as the County and State established parklands, like the Mendota Wildlife Refuge. According to the 2010 Census, Mendota had a population of 12,911.

There are 10 assisted living facilities in Mendota and 19 nursing home facilities nearby.

It is well known that older adults living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are extremely vulnerable to adverse events that could severely diminish their overall health and quality of life. Falls are one of the most common injuries among these elderly residents that often results in serious injury—particularly hip fractures. According to a recent report in the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association, an estimated 1.6 million people over the age of 50 worldwide experience a hip fracture from a fall each year. Moreover, women are twice as likely to sustain a hip fracture than their male counterparts. It is clear that for older adults in long-term care facilities, supervision and monitoring of fall risk must be carried out by care staff on a regular basis to assess their likelihood of falling and take the appropriate precautionary measures.

It is crucial that nursing staff strive to maintain or improve their patient’s mobile function for as long as possible. Providing opportunities for patients to engage in physical exercises and activities to increase their muscle mass and strength has been shown to be hugely effective in decreasing fall risk, not to mention improving their psychological wellbeing. These facilities must maintain appropriate staffing levels to ensure that their patients are being given these types of programs.

At Yeroushalmi Law, we find nursing homes and assisted living facilities that provide inadequate quality. We are experts in elder law and want to fight for those who have been a victim of elder abuse or neglect and are compassionate toward your suffering. Contact us today for a free consultation. 

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.

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
