Cambridge Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Cambridge Nursing Home Injury AttorneysThe Cambridge nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC care about the needs and rights of our elderly and seeking justice on their behalf whenever nursing centers fail to provide the attentive care that they deserve. Since many of the for profit nursing homes taking over the industry place a greater priority on profits than ensuring they provide the greatest quality of care possible, we have compiled a list of facilities known for their histories of cutting corners and ignoring the needs of their patients so that you can place your loved ones in homes that are willing to offer the attention and quality treatment they deserve.

Cambridge Senior Demographics

The city of Cambridge is most renowned for hosting Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which both draw residents from around the nation and help to contribute to the city’s population of over 105,000. With such a large student population, it is easy for the public to overlook the senior population, which accounts for 9.5% of the total with plenty of residents edging ever closer to their own retirement dates.

Those who are looking to build relationships with their peers, lead happy and healthy lifestyles or gain access to nutritional programs or transportation assistance can find what they need at the Citywide Senior Center. The center offers fitness, arts and language classes along with Tai Chi, Yoga, regular lunches and special social events and trips.

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
