Defending the Rights of Nursing Home Residents in Central Florida

At Rue & Ziffra, we understand that entrusting a loved one to the care of a nursing home is a significant decision fraught with concern for their well-being. Unfortunately, the disturbing reality is that nursing home abuse is a prevalent issue, with vulnerable seniors suffering from neglect and various forms of abuse. Armed with decades of experience and a deep commitment to justice, our nursing home abuse attorneys are dedicated to confronting this injustice head-on, ensuring that victims in Volusia and Flagler Counties receive the protection and respect they deserve.

The Alarming Reality of Nursing Home Abuse

Statistics from authoritative bodies like the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) and the National Council on Aging (NCOA) paint a grim picture of the elder abuse landscape, highlighting that:

  • An estimated 10% of seniors experience neglect or abuse.
  • Nearly half of seniors with dementia face abuse.
  • A significant portion of abuse cases go unreported, with only one in fourteen cases brought to light.

These figures underscore the critical importance of vigilance and action in the face of suspected abuse.
