Elder Law

Staten Island Attorney Advises on Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities

Helping seniors understand their rights and receive proper care

Choosing a nursing home or an assisted living facility for an elder loved one is an emotionally taxing process. However, when you have reached your capacity to care for a parent whose health is declining, the most responsible step is to seek capable, professional help. At William J. Newstad, Esq., Attorney and Counselor at Law, we strive to be part of the support network that ensures your loved one gets compassionate and dignified care. Since 1996, we’ve provided a comforting environment for our clients to discuss their concerns candidly and receive thorough, reliable information on the best options available.

Choosing the right facility for an elderly loved one

Choosing a nursing home or assisted living facility is an emotional as well as a financial investment. To make sure your emotions don’t cloud your judgment and that you get the highest level of services for what you can afford to pay, talk to us. Our experience in elder law, asset protection and long-term care planning enables us provide reliable guidance on:

  • Facility selection
  • Payment options
  • Government benefits
  • Contract terms

Our commitment to personalized service means that we meet with you face-to-face and thoroughly address all the pertinent questions surrounding elder care facilities in New York and New Jersey.

Protecting nursing home residents from neglect

Once you have chosen a nursing facility, and signed the papers, you and your elder loved one have an enforceable contract. You also have common law protecting your elder from negligent practices that put them at risk. William J. Newstad, Esq., Attorney and Counselor at Law supports seniors in nursing homes and assisted living facilities who do not receive the accepted standard of care. We advocate for their rights in cases of contractual violations and negligent harm, such as:

  • Bedsores
  • Billing errors
  • Falls
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Failure to monitor
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Medication errors
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Unhygienic conditions

Medicaid patients do not lose any rights by accepting government assistance. As your nursing home and assisted-living attorney, we fight to ensure that seniors are treated with the human dignity they deserve.
