This can lead to a dangerous cycle, where conditions such as anxiety and depression make residents more susceptible to physical ailments, which can in turn worsen their mental and emotional states. For nursing home residents suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, the risk of emotional trauma from mistreatment and inadequate care is even higher.

If you or an elderly family member living in a nursing home has experienced emotional trauma – or even if you think this might be the case – we encourage you to contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation. Our attorneys have helped thousands of clients in the Chicagoland area and throughout Illinois, and we can make sure that you or your loved one receives the care, compassion, and compensation that you deserve.
