More and more of Louisiana’s senior citizens are entrusting their care to the nurses and staff who work at nursing homes and other assisted living facilities. As children of aging parents, we want our mothers and fathers to receive the best care possible. Unfortunately, however, a growing number of senior citizens face abuse or neglect on a daily basis. This is often due to cost-saving techniques employed by nursing homes, or it might be caused by a blatant disregard for the needs of their residents.
