Norwalk was incorporated in 1957 and is located in Los Angeles County. As of 2014, Norwalk has had a population of 107,096 people and is heavily populated, known as the 58th most populated city in California. Interestingly, Norwalk has served as a set for many television programs and movies including The Karate Kid, Speed, and Heroes. In regards to the history of Norwalk, Shoshonean Native Americans were the first to inhabit the area. Their primary form of sustenance was honey, a variety of berries, squirrels, acorns, sage, birds and rabbits. Their huts made up a portion of the Sejat Indian village. For older adults who are in need of long-term care, there are currently six skilled nursing facilities and two assisted living facilities located in Norwalk. Additionally, there are home health care agencies located in Norwalk, as well.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi understand the stress that accompanies finding the right nursing home for your loved one. While there are many options for nursing home facilities within the city of Norwalk, even the best facility will have problems.

Urinary incontinence, which is defined as “any involuntary loss of urine” is a critical health issue that is prevalent among the nursing home and assisted living facility population. It affects both women and men, and increases in risk with age. The health problem negatively impacts psychological and social wellbeing, as well as seriously lowers quality of life and exacerbates the need for intensive nursing home care. Furthermore, substantial evidence has shown that urinary incontinence poses a risk factor for a poorer ability to carry out activities of daily living in nursing home patients, such as bathing, eating, toileting, and dressing. Patients with dementia are particularly at risk, as well as patients with stroke or diabetes. Nursing home staff should take initiative to control their patients’ urinary incontinence. Studies have shown that by implementing structural indicators, like a voiding record or food and fluid diary, incontinence care can be more effective in improving the health issue.

Often times, nursing homes heavily rely on body worn pads and underlay pads that cover beds and chairs instead of providing training interventions that focus on improving incontinence in elderly patients, which is indicative of poor quality of care.

If you or a loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home or assisted living facility, we will review your case with compassion and empathy. Please contact our office today for a free consultation.

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
