Nearly two million Americans live in long-term care facilities, and abuse and neglect against the elderly are national concerns. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect is too frequently overlooked. In order to understand the scope of the problem and to help educate family members on “What they should know before choosing a nursing home,” the Family Council Consortium will host a Seminar on Saturday, October 03, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. at the Evergreen Park Public Library, 9400 South Troy Street, Evergreen Park, IL 60805
Speakers from both the public and private sector will speak on the following topics:
-How the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services evaluate and rate nursing homes;
-Where to find information that will allow you to compare various long-term care facilities;
-How to spot signs of neglect or abuse;
-How to take legal action should your loved one be abused or neglected in a nursing home.
-Why family members should not sign an arbitration agreement.in nursing homes.
-Identity Theft and Consumer Fraud
Please know, we must not only take notice but speak in a loud voluminous voice against the neglect and abuse our seniors and family members are receiving in nursing homes. We can no longer sit silent. We must take major steps to change this climate.
Your presence is needed and requested.
