Welcome to the San Dimas nursing home neglect information website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi.

San Dimas is located in the San Gabriel Valley and was incorporated in 1960. In the late 1800's, the city had developed quickly into an agrarian society. Lemons and oranges were its primary crops until the mid-20th century. A popular attraction located in San Dimas is Raging Waters, which is one of the largest water parks in California. There are no nursing homes located in San Dimas, but you can search for one in a neighboring city on this website.

One of the most difficult things to witness is the decline in functionality of a loved one. It is inevitable that with age, individuals will become more dependent on others to perform activities of daily living. For example, many nursing home patients become incontinent and either need assistance using the bathroom, or eventually must wear diapers to prevent accidents. Becoming more and more dependent on others is just as difficult, if not more, for your loved one. Incontinence often comes with other consequences, such as a loss of dignity. For this reason, you must ensure that your loved one's caregiver is emotionally supportive and encouraging so that your loved one does not feel embarrassed or ashamed about his or her health condition.

Although the goal of nursing homes should be to maintain independence of their residents for as long as possible, many facilities abuse their patients and take steps to ensure the further decline of their residents. For example, even though some patients are still able to walk, facilities will bind them to their beds by using physical restraints. In other cases, nurses will put a patient in diapers prematurely to avoid having to assist them to the restroom. Actions like these actually expedite the aging process and cause residents to become dependent even more quickly. Such tactics are most often used in understaffed facilities that lack the resources to provide high quality, individualized care to each of their patients.

If you feel that your loved one's nursing home is subjecting him or her to physical or emotional abuse, contact us today to see how we can help.

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
