Monroe Township is a land of sprawling green fields and county parks centered between Princeton, New Jersey and the coast of the Atlantic. It was founded in 1838, and is named for President James Monroe. It is part of a larger group of communities that make up Middlesex County. While Monroe Township is home to both young and elder citizens, between the 2000 census and the 2010 Census, there was a considerable increase in the number of age-restricted senior citizen communities. As our loved ones age, we are faced with the decision whether to arrange for others to provide care for them in their homes, to care for them in our homes—with or without outside help, or to arrange for care in a facility.
When you have decided that the best placement for your elder parent relative is placement in a partial or continuous care facility, there are important factors to consider. Cost is always an important factor, as well as the location of the facility in the event of any emergencies. Inspect the facility and take care to note whether the floors are dry and free of debris, that furnishings and equipment are in good working order, and that the staff seems attentive. Facilities that are not well-maintained may indicate a larger issue with neglect. Nursing home neglect takes many forms. It may be that the staff is ignoring or yelling at your loved one, or not bringing them water or food. It could be as serious as failing to treat medical issues with proper medication, allowing patients to develop bedsores, or actual physical abuse. If your parent or loved one seems to have undergone dramatic changes in behavior or appearance, has bruises from falls or other injuries, or has bedsores from being left to lie in bed for too long, they may be a victim of nursing home neglect and you may want to seek the help of an attorney.
