What is an Assisted Living Facility and are They Merely Landlords?
An assisted living facility is a facility that more often than not houses older adults to permit them to have independence with a heightened degree of supervision. They are not merely landlords, and they do have an obligation to protect the individuals living there from foreseeable and avoidable injuries, such as wandering off or repeated falls. In the event that you have a loved one who has sustained this type of injury, they may have needed to have been transferred to a nursing care center where there's 24 hours days, 7 day a week care. You should, if you believe a loved one's been injured, contact an attorney.
