New York and Schenectady Nursing Home Planning Lawyer
It is common for individuals to find themselves needing nursing home and long-term care options immediately due to a health crisis or injury. They can't go home, and state law requires that they take the first available nursing home within a 60-mile radius, regardless of preference. In addition to the strain of the health concerns, there are heavy decisions to be made by family and friends, often with little or no guidance.
Our attorneys work quickly to help these individuals. We do everything within our power to keep the individual close to family in the most preferential nursing home possible.
