Finding the right nursing home is far from easy. In fact, it can be downright scary. Tragic stories of elder abuse and neglect in Georgia nursing homes and assisted living facilities have made headlines in recent years. When the abuse happens to you or someone you love, the pain and horror are unimaginable.
All nursing home residents have rights that are protected by state and federal laws. Unfortunately, some of these facilities violate the rules, either for financial gain or for reasons unknown. The result is that our most vulnerable citizens are subjected to inhumane treatment and exploitation. Even worse, it is widely believed that most cases of elder abuse go unreported.
