Hard choices can be made easier with a little knowledge

You might see it happening right in front of you, but it can be hard to admit that your parents can no longer take care of themselves. Get the knowledge you need to make the tough decisions about Elder Care.  Whether it is home care or nursing home living, many people don’t have the time to do months of research when the time comes to make these choices for your loved ones. Our website is here to make the decision easier.

What You Need to Know to Make a Decision...

The truth of the matter is that the sooner you take action, the sooner you can improve your loved one’s quality of life. You can make sure that they are getting the help that they need to live long, fulfilling lives. For some families, this means considering a home health aide, an assisted living facility, or even a nursing home.

Even though it can be difficult for some families to think about moving a loved one to a nursing home, this may be the best option for some people.  But, you need to choose a home carefully to make sure that you find the right fit for your loved one. Even after moving them into a home, you have to stay vigilant to prevent neglect and abuse issues.

Whether you have already chosen a home or are just beginning the process, you need to be well educated on nursing home neglect and abuse in order to prevent it. On this website, you can find information about:

About Attorney Ruane

Both my grandmothers passed away in nursing homes…

One night I was speaking with my wife Jill about her grandfather, who was living in a local nursing home to recover from a surgery, and the subject of nursing homes came up.

I hadn’t thought much about it, but both of my grandmothers died in their nursing homes and the experience of both left me with a sense of hope.  You see, my “Grandma” was diagnosed with stomach cancer, and quickly deteriorated, and the home helped her manager her pain and gave her death with dignity. My “Nana” lived years in a nursing home, and the care she was shown showed me the true dedication to eldercare some of the nursing staff has.  At the time, as a family, we didn’t have options like the internet to research the homes that they would go to.The sad truth is that we put them in the first home with an open bed we could find. And we turned out to be very lucky.

But having spent the last 20 years as a lawyer handling cases, I have heard horror stories about experiences for our most vulnerable in nursing homes. As the baby boomer population grows into old age every passing year, I knew it was important for someone to put out a resource about local Connecticut Nursing Homes near me, abuse and what to look for, and most importantly, what questions to ask when faced with putting a loved one into a facility.

It didn’t exist, so I created it.

My promise to you is to help your family as if they were my own. Together, we can make sure that your family is taken care of.  This next step in the aging process will always have some measure of stress and self doubt. What I can provide is guidance and objective information.  If it turns out you need the assistance of a lawyer, I can help guide you to someone I know can help, whether it be for probate, discrimination or injury issues.  This is how I give back. Call on me if you need help.
