Gimmie All Your Money. Now Get Out.

Pay for Elderly CareMark this post.  Look at this news story from New Jersey.  A year from now this will be a common theme amongst nursing homes and long-term care facilities throughout the country… we are seeing just the beginning of this trend to make nursing homes and long-term care facilities as profitable as possible in the face of slimming budgets and corporate ownership.

Its no secret that Medicare and private-pay residents are far more lucrative for facilities that Medicaid recipients.  As budgets for nursing homes and long-term care facilities begin to tighten and people live longer than ever, it only a matter of time before facilities evict those less lucrative residents.

Now facilities can not order you out of the facility on a whim.  Strict removal protocols must be followed.  If you believe that the facility evicting you based on your economic situation, you should contact your state ombudsman immediately.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

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
