USA Today ran a great article yesterday on nursing home quality. Their investigation found, somewhat surprisingly, that nonprofit nursing homes provide better care than for-profit homes.
So, nursing home care seems to be one of those few areas in life where you don’t necessarily get what you pay for.
Upon reflection, the results aren’t so surprising. Caring for the elderly is a calling. People who are motivated primarily by money are unlikely to have that calling and therefore are likely to provide lesser care.
If you believe that a relative of yours has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, and requires the services of a Boston nursing home abuse and neglect attorney, call The Law Office of Alan H. Crede to arrange a free in-person consultation.
