New Alternative To Nursing Homes For Illinois’ Seniors

New Alternative To Nursing Homes A New Lenox CNA recently opened her home to seniors seeking an alternative to large Illinois Nursing Homes.  The New Lenox Patriot reports Holly Hull, a veteran nursing home CNA, has opened Holly’s Alternative Care.  Recognizing that many larger nursing homes fail to provide one-on-one interaction and a homelike environment, Hull decided to open her home as a small-scale care facility

“After 25 years at nursing homes and hospice facilities I decided to work from home while still providing care for seniors.  It is my mission to give them a more focused care in a setting that is safer and more comfortable than a nursing home and at a cheaper rate,” said Hull.

Hull’s home will accommodate up to two senior at a time.  Each senior will have their own furnished room, a twin bed, TV and dresser.  Meals, housekeeping, laundry, and utilities are included in the monthly rent which is based on the type of care and amount of care provided.  The home is handicapped accessible so seniors with wheelchairs and walkers can freely navigate through her home.

The smaller setting does not mean that the nursing care will be compromised.  Hull and an assistant will still provide 24-hour care to the residents.  Additionally, Hull has experience caring for seniors with special needs.  Hull has cared for seniors with nervous system disorders, diabetes and special diets.

The Nursing Homes Abuse Blog wishes Holly Hull and her facility well.  Hopefully others will take notice that there are viable alternatives to sterile, commercial nursing homes.  Good luck Holly!

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
