Kankakee, Illinois Nursing Home Lawyers

Kankakee, Illinois is home to many nursing homes. When trying to determine where to place a loved one, where do you turn? Our lawyers get frequent calls asking the same questions: Are there any "good" nursing homes in my area? Has this nursing home ever been sued? How do I pick the right nursing home for my loved one? As attorneys, we don't vet every nursing home in Illinois for their performance, but with over 40 years of litigation experience, we are familiar with some of the resources available to individuals seeking nursing home placement.

Family's often have concerns beyond the quality of the nursing home, such as staffing, activities available, cleanliness, food quality, and proximity to their home.

If the above list does not help, feel free to give one of our experienced nursing home attorneys a call for further help and resources related to choosing the right nursing home for you or a loved one. A high rating does not necessarily mean that your loved one will receive good care at the nursing home and a poor score does not mean that your loved one is destined to be abused or neglected if placed there. It is important to do your own due diligence before choosing where to place your loved one.

The following may also be beneficial in determining the right Kankakee area nursing home for you or your loved one:

  • Tour the facility;
  • Try the food at the facility;
  • Speak with the department heads of the nursing home, including the director of nursing and administrator; and
  • Talk to staff about your questions and concerns.

Over a span of over 40 years, our lawyers have collected tens of millions of dollars in recoveries for our clients who have been abused and/or neglected in a nursing home, while providing them the personalized attention that these situations require. If you believe you have a claim or are otherwise dissatisfied with the nursing home your loved one is in, give us a call and let our attorneys evaluate your case and help you develop a plan to get you the help you need.
