Unfortunately, there are many different kinds of elder neglect and abuse. When you have a loved one who needs care, the last thing you want to worry about is whether this family member is being hurt or neglected in a nursing home, assisted living, or other care facility. Sadly, this issue has become of increasing importance across Michigan and throughout the county. Personal injuries, malpractice, and inadequate care and supervision are increasing in magnitude as the elderly population increases.
