Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Baby boomers who are not yet considered "elders" will be within the coming years. This generation will soon mean that the population of elders in America is at an all-time high. Unfortunately, as North County San Diegans age, they often become targets of predators seeking to take advantage of them, particularly when they are at their weakest, and reside in a California nursing home. Nursing home abuse and neglect in San Diego County is often both a civil and criminal offense, and may appear in many different forms.
