Before you can solve a problem with care or services received in an assisted living facility, learn what rights residents are guaranteed by law, assess whether any of them are being violated, and take action with the appropriate agency or individual if necessary.
Become informed about the specific rights residents have, along with the management’s obligations to its residents.
Understand whether your concerns about care and treatment amount to legal violations.
A resident, friend, family member, conservator, or advocate who finds a facility’s care lacking, negligent, or abusive can take these steps to correct it.
As a last resort, consider consulting an attorney to see whether legal action may be appropriate.
