Gilbert Nursing Homes Abuse Attorney

Gilbert Elder Abuse LawyerGilbert is a rapidly growing suburb of Phoenix and the largest incorporated town in the United States. Its growing population includes numerous senior citizens and the Gilbert nursing home abuse attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC work diligently to protect their rights and interests from the growing number of for profit nursing facilities that place a greater priority on profits than quality. In order to assist you in making a more informed decision regarding where to place your loved one, we have compiled data on the nursing centers that serve the Gilbert area.

Gilbert Senior Demographics

From 1980 through 2010, Gilbert grew from a population of only 5,717 to over 208,000. Its current population is 239,000, making it the fastest growing municipality in the United States. Its economy is driven primarily by healthcare, retail and education, but its explosive growth has made it an attractive location for national corporations to consider. This has allowed the city to maintain economic diversity. Arizona has become an attractive location for retirees in recent years and 6.1% of Gilbert’s population is comprised of residents over the age of 65.

Those over the age of 50 are able to meet others with shared interests at the Gilbert Senior Center and participate in numerous social programs, classes and fitness programs so that they can remain physically and socially active. A senior nutrition program provided by the Christian Community Center allows residents to obtain quality meals for as little as $2.50 and assistance is available for those on limited incomes. Other services include yoga, tai chi, chair exercises, live music and dances, blood pressure checks, bingo, bunco and a RummiKub club. For more information on the senior center’s schedule and activities, you can call (480) 503-6061.

When to Investigate Suspicions of Neglect or Abuse

If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of abuse or neglect, our Gilbert nursing injury lawyers invite you to share your suspicions with one of our attorneys so that we can tell you whether your concerns are warranted. We would rather rule out a case of negligence than allow your loved one to continue suffering due to mistreatment. Some of the most common signs linked to abuse include the following.

  • Sudden outbursts of anger or change in behavior. This can include paranoia, loss of enjoyment in activities, silence in the presence of caregivers or other suspicious changes in behavior.
  • Symptoms of dehydration or malnourishment, such as faintness, fatigue, dizziness, weight loss, dark urine and confusion.
  • Development of bedsores or infections. Bedsores are easily prevented, making them a common sign of neglect. The sores may become infected, leading to life threatening complications.
  • Signs of physical or sexual assault such as bruises or marks. Because the victim is often restrained during the abuse, marks are common on the wrists or ankles.

Client Reviews

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
