Mission Viejo is a city located in Orange County neighboring Irvine. It is a suburban area with lots of hills and uneven land. It is home to several notable Olympians and continues to hold a strong emphasis on athletics. Mission Viejo was purchased during the Mexican-American War and was one of the last areas in Orange County to become urbanized since many early developers believed the land to be unfit for the development of a city. Finally, during the 1980s, a plan was set up which used the cities valleys as roads and its hills as a location for homes. Mission Viejo wasn’t incorporated as a city until 1988 and by 2014 its population had reached about 96,346 people. Today, the city is home to the largest hospital in south Orange County. It also holds a high elderly population with about 15% of its residents being over the age of 65. About 31% of its population is aged 45 to 64 years old. There are currently 6 assisted living facilities in Mission Viejo.

With such a large middle aged and elderly population, it is important for the residents of Mission Viejo to know about some of the complications that come with old age. Frailty, for example, is caused by old age and requires extra attention and care. As our loved ones’ age and frailty becomes a characteristic, any fall or minor injury can have greater consequences. Therefore, it is extremely important for nursing homes and assisted living facilities to keep an attentive watch on their patients. Elderly suffering from frailty need extra care and supervision to do daily activities such as move from their beds to their wheel chairs, eat, or shower. While many believe that elderly suffering from such conditions would be better taken care of at an assisted living facility, this is not always the case. In many instances these facilities do not have the staff that is needed to give their patients the individualized attention they require. Often understaffing leaves nurses caring for more patients than they can physically handle resulting in a decline in time spent with each patient and an increased risk of injuries. When there is a problem of understaffing patients are left unattended for longer periods of time increasing their chances of falling. When coupled with frailty theses falls could be extremely dangerous and could have deathly consequences.

Falls and injuries among the elderly are preventable. If you believe that you or a loved one have been injured because of insufficient staffing at a nursing home or assisted living facility, give us a call today for a free consultation. Our staff will do its best to bring those responsible to justice.

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
