Nursing/residential home negligence
Placing a relative or loved one into a care home can be a difficult decision. Case will usually be necessitated as a result of that individual needing additional care and support, which cannot be provided for or accommodated at home. The type of home needed will be dictated by the individual’s needs, and broadly speaking care homes will either be nursing homes (where nursing/medical care is required) or residential homes (where supported living, but not nursing/medical care is required). Of course, the needs of an individual can change as the years progress, and it may be that, if medical care is required, the existing home will need to suggest a move to another facility that can better care for the needs of that person.
Life in a care home can be positive and life-extending. However, in a very small number of cases, care can fall below the expected standard, leading to injuries or, at very worst, death.
We have acted for individuals and their families who have been directly affected by failures in nursing or residential home care. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with claims of this nature, and can offer the support and sympathetic ear necessary to guide you through the process of challenging the care provided to your loved one.
