Rancho Palos Verdes, California

Welcome to the Rancho Palos Verdes Website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, where we strive to protect you and your loved ones from the many abuses that can occur in Los Angeles nursing homes.

The city of Rancho Palos Verdes is best known for its beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. The city boasts many historical landmarks, including the San Vicente Lighthouse, which was built in 1926, and the pristine Wayfarers Chapel, sometimes known as the "glass church." The city is also infamous for its Portuguese bend, which features a continuous landslide. Rancho Palos Verdes does not have any skilled nursing facilities, but you can search this website for one close to your home.

Coming from such beautiful homes as those in Rancho Palos Verdes, the transition to a long-term care facility is especially difficult for the elderly who can no longer live independently. For this reason, it is extremely important for you to choose a nursing home that will accommodate your loved one and provide him or her with the emotional support that is necessary to facilitate this difficult process.

Often, nursing home residents feel isolated and eventually become depressed when they leave their lifelong homes for these facilities, which must feel inhospitable and foreign at first. This is sometimes a consequence of understaffing because nurses and other staff members have so many other responsibilities that they are unable to personally engage with each of their patients and provide him or her with the emotional support that is necessary. A high-quality nursing home makes sure to implement numerous leisurely and social activities, which have been proven to alleviate depressive symptoms in dementia patients. The facility must also strive to maintain regular levels of physical activity through methods such as resistance training, which improves both mental and physical well-being in the elderly. A lack of physical activity actually expedites the aging process by causing individuals to become dependent on others for activities of daily living more quickly and also has many physical health implications including a higher risk of developing pressure ulcers and incontinence.

If your loved one is always in bed every time you visit him or her at the nursing home, we implore you to take action immediately because your loved one's health is being directly affected by nursing home neglect and inadequate staffing.
