Confidential Settlement Against Dementia Care Facility – Understaffing

Confidential Settlement Against Dementia Care Facility for family who was required to hire "private duty care givers" due to understaffing of the facility.

When the family of an elderly resident complained that the staff was neglecting their mother's needs, the care facility required the family to hire a "private duty" care giver, at the family's own expense, forcing the family to pay tens of thousands of dollars on top of the exorbitant monthly fees the facility charged. As a result of the lawsuit, the family was able to recovery the extra monies the family had to pay over several years for their mother's care.
