  • Nursing Home Neglect and Malpractice (Updated for 2019)

    Posted on April 17, 2019 by Vincent Jesuele

    Due to advancements in medicine and science, our parents are living increasingly longer than in the past. In 1960, the average life expectancy in the United States was slightly more than 69 years; it is currently 78 years.

    In our state, 15.8% of our residents are 65 or older. Since the current New Jersey population is nearly 9 million, this translates to more than 1.4 million seniors over the age of 65.

    As our parents age, we, as children, are now taking on the responsibilities of finding suitable long term care facilities. Facilities where our parents can be safe, comfortable and happy as we work long hours to afford the high cost of living in New Jersey while raising our own children.

    Nursing homes frequently cost upwards of $10,000 per month for the care we expect, and require, our parents to have. Sadly, in many cases, the care is substandard. When this occurs, our parents suffer and we suffer along with them.
