Injury lawyers in Whiston

Few people relish the prospect of having to arrange for an elderly relative to see out their autumn years in a care home. On top of the cost, which can substantially eat into an older person’s estate, there’s the emotional toll on both the elderly person themselves and the guilt felt by the wider immediate family. Sometimes however, there can be few alternatives. If an elderly relative can no longer look after themselves in their own home and there are no relatives with either the time or the resources to take on the role of full-time carer, the services of a care home can be the only option.

Many care homes strive to give their residents the best service they can manage. Many care home workers are extremely dedicated, and despite being paid a comparatively low wage, take pride in giving their all to ensuring their charges enjoy their final years in comfort. Unfortunately though, there are a small minority of care home managers and staff who do not take their responsibilities as seriously as they should. It’s likely you’ve seen media coverage of cases where the negligent or irresponsible – sometimes criminal – behaviour of care home managers or workers results in a resident becoming injured or made ill through no fault of their own.
